Snooping through people’s photos on social media, peeling off dry skin after a holiday and singing at the top of your voice whilst driving have been named amongst the ten guilty pleasures that put British people in a good mood.
A survey of 2,000 people by Chorley-based Ohana Topical Patches, the UK supplier of slow release vitamin and herbal patches, revealed that 83 per cent of those questioned admitted to a weird habit that made them feel better.
Other activities on the list included squeezing a partner’s blackheads, eating leftover takeaway the morning after a night out and stealing toiletries from hotel bathrooms.
The survey was carried out as part of the launch of Ohana’s new patches containing Vitamin D, the vitamin linked to lifting mood and making people feel happy.
Top ten weird things that make us happy:
1. Peeling off dry skin
2. Squeezing partner’s blackheads
3. Snooping through people’s photographs on social media
4. Singing along to songs on the car stereo
5. Silently breaking wind in public
6. Stealing toiletries from hotels
7. Staying in your pajamas all day
8. Eating leftover takeaway the morning after a night out
9. Drinking alcohol for breakfast at the airport
10. Putting rubbish in a neighbour’s bin when yours is full
Peter Love of Ohana said: “Our bodies naturally produce Vitamin D when exposed to UV sunlight but as we get older our body’s ability to manufacture Vitamin D decreases and, of course, the sun doesn’t always shine in the UK!
“Several studies have also suggested that the symptoms of seasonal affective disorder (SAD) may be due to low levels of vitamin D3, which may affect serotonin levels in the brain.
“It is amazing the weird and wonderful things people do to give themselves a lift and make them feel better but ultimately supplying your body with the right vitamins and nutrients is the best way to give yourself a lift.
“Vitamin D Topical Patches contain Vitamin D3, Magnesium, Vitamin K2 and Calcium, all of which also help with bone, heart, brain, breast and colon health.”
Devised by a group of doctors, health and wellness professionals, the patches contain vitamin and supplement formulas available without prescription.
The vitamins are absorbed slowly into the body through the skin, giving a steady flow throughout the day, and a medical adhesive insures that the patch stays on throughout the day/night comfortably with minimal to no irritation.
Ohana patches’ traditional healing and nutrition can complement any wellness programme, can help boost focus and fitness for sportsmen and women and aid concentration for academics.
All are made, whenever possible, from natural, cruelty-free sourced ingredients, that are vegan friendly and are free from artificial dyes, dairy, egg, gluten, peanuts, shellfish, sugar and many other common allergens.
