The declining economy is having an impact on the emotional happiness of Great Britain according to The Celebration Report conducted by Bingocams.co.uk and psychologist Dr. Linda Papadopoulos.

The report consisted of 4,053 adults ranging from 18 years of age and up in the survey conducted August 19th-22nd.

The report reveals that 71% want to celebrate life more while the 18-24 year olds find there is little cause for celebration. 57% feel that celebrating makes their lives happier; concluding that without it there is a detrimental effect on how they feel. Therefore even the smallest celebration is imperative in enriching life.

The study also shows that people who are less inhibited have more fun while financial difficulties are putting a strain on over 55% in celebrating life to the fullest. The lack of opportunity to prosper effects 28% from finding a reason to celebrate.

Dr Linda comments: “Being able to take pleasure and enjoy the smaller, simpler things in life is a great way to feel happier. We must learn to let go when it comes to celebrating; living moments of happiness fully has been shown to have a positive effect not only on emotional health but on physical health as well.”

Bingocams.co.uk and Dr. Linda Papadopoulos’ research was conducted by YouGov and examines the psychology of celebration with opinions and approach to those surveyed.

The results revealed:

 

  • 7 in 10 agree that finding things to smile about is now more important than ever
  • 57% of Brits agree that those who let go during celebrations have the most fun
  • 64% would like to see a return to simpler, community-based celebrations with 78% rating spending time with friends and family as more important now than ever

 

Dr Linda states: “Being able to celebrate and share positive experiences with those around us has a great effect on bonding and building community spirit which also has been shown to correlate with good mental health.”

 

  • 30% of those aged 18-24 feel they don’t have much to celebrate and 56% of that age group are finding it harder to find fun things to do in their spare time
  • Despite 65% agreeing that they are worried about the way youth today celebrates, 57% of 18-24 year olds feel that we should celebrate more together as a nation – more than any other group
  • Not only does the act of celebrating affect our psychological health – 57% believe that those who celebrate more lead happier lives, it also has a positive effect on our physical health

 

“Physical changes when a positive unexpected event happens to us include a rise in endorphins, increased heart rate and an over feeling of well-being. It is no surprise that people actually FEEL the effects of celebrating,” adds Dr Linda

 

  • Celebration can be as good as sex – if you’re a man
  • Men are more likely than women to hold back their emotions when something great happens to them, with only just over half (54%) even breaking out into a smile
  • Women are also most likely to grab someone and give them a hug to celebrate good news
  • When actually celebrating, the majority of Brits (44%) say they always do so in moderation; just over a quarter (26%) are exuberant, outgoing and ‘let it all out’ celebrants, whilst a fifth (20%) are shy and retiring or introverted in their celebrations
  • The report also reveals interesting insights with regard to regionalism. Despite stereotypes, such as those from the North being unfettered in their partying and those from London being standoffish, statistics actually show that Londoners are more likely to be extroverted during celebrations (33%) than Northerners (24%)
  • Meanwhile, most regions freely acknowledge Scotland and London as being intrinsic to the true spirit of celebration, hosting Hogmanay and royal occasions, respectively

 

Vikki Taylor, Marketing Manager UK of Bingocams.co.uk comments: “We welcome the findings of this research. While people seem to be slightly struggling at the moment, they are definitely looking for ways in which to celebrate more. AtBingocams.co.uk we have made celebrations the core of our offering with thousands of Live Win Moments every day for players to celebrate their winnings”.

Life in itself is cause for celebration. Look around you, the celebration can be found in the smallest of things. And when you celebrate the world celebrates with you.
