  Sleeping in a freshly made bed is the thing most likely to makepeople feel great according to new research.

  一项新的研究表明,睡在新铺好的床上最容易让人感觉美好。

  Changing the bed sheets may feel like a chore to some but thefeeling of sleeping in a freshly made bed has topped a list of the50 things that make us feel good with nearly two-thirds (62 percent) saying it is their favourite feel great moment.

  更换床单对一些人来说可能是一件苦差事,但是睡在新铺的床上却位列“50件让我们感到很棒的小事”之首,近三分之二(62%)的受访者称,这是他们最喜欢、感觉最好的时刻。

  The feeling of the sun on our face came second on the list (57 per cent) with people saying 'thankyou' or a random act of kindness from a stranger completing the top three.

  57%的人表示,阳光洒在脸上的感觉很舒服,此项位列第二。第三则是,人们说“谢谢”时或是陌生人一个善意的行为。

  The survey of 2000 people was conmissioned by Bupa to launch its Feel Great Britain campaign.Strictly come Dancing host Tess Daly is fronting the drive to encourage people to enjoy plenty offeel great moments to improve their overall health and well-being.

  保柏集团(Bupa)发起了一项“让英国人享受美好”的活动,该活动对2000名英国人进行了调查。英国真人秀节目《舞动奇迹》主持人苔丝·达莉(Tess Daly)代言该活动并鼓励人们享受美好时刻,以提高整体健康水平和幸福感。

  Finding a bargain in the sales (41 per cent) and a cup of tea (39 per cent) were also among thefavourite feel great moments.

  买到便宜货(41%的人投票)、喝一杯茶(39%的人投票)都是让英国人感觉美好的瞬间。

  The top 50 also contained a number of more bizarre feel great moments including rainbows (23per cent) popping bubble wrap (20 per cent) dancing like no-one is watching (19 per cent) newstationary (11 per cent) the 'pop' when you open a new jam jar (nine per cent) and cleaning waxfrom your ears (eight per cent).

  前50项里面同样包括一些比较怪诞的但却令人感觉愉快的瞬间,例如:看到彩虹(23%)、挤包装袋的泡泡(20%)、旁若无人的跳舞(19%)、得到了新文具(11%)、打开果酱罐时“嘭”的一声(9%)、掏耳朵(8%)。

  However the survey also revealed a worrying trend for how rarely people feel great. Just one ineight (12.5 per cent) said they have a 'feel great' moment more than once a month and almostone in five lacked inspiration.

  然而,调查也显示了一个令人担忧的趋势,人们很少会感觉很棒。只有八分之一(12.5%)的人称他们一个多月才会感觉到心情不错,近五分之一的人表示没有什么鼓舞人心的事情。

  Stress (64 per cent) a lack of sleep (63 per cent) bad manners (51 per cent) financial pressures(50 per cent) and the weather (47 per cent) were the top reasons given for preventing peoplefrom feeling great.

  人们感觉不好的原因多来自于:压力(64%)、睡眠不足(63%)、不礼貌行为(51%)、经济压力(50%)和天气(47%)。

  The findings also suggest that feeling great occurs more often later in life with 21 per cent of over55s saying they have a feel great moment every day. However 28 per cent of 25 to 34-year-oldsand 30 per cent of 45 to 54-year-olds only have a feel great moment once a week.

  研究结果表明,感觉很棒的时刻多出现在中老年时期,21%的55岁以上的人每天都会有感觉很棒的时刻。然而,28%的年龄在25—34岁的人以及30%的45—54岁的人平均一周才会有一次这种感觉。

  Tess Daly Bupa's Feel Great Britain ambassador said: "We all have those little things that make usfeel great - for me it's feeling the sun on my face.

  保柏“让英国人享受美好”这一活动的形象大使苔丝·达莉(Tess Daly)说道:“每个人都有能让心情变好的小招数,对于我来说,阳光照在脸上的感觉美极了。”

  "With modern society being so busy people struggle to find the time and lack the inspiration toenjoy a feel great moment."

  “现代社会的人们太匆忙,很难有时间也缺乏灵感来享受美好时刻。”

  Dr Paula Franklin UK Medical Director at Bupa said: "People seem to find it easy to name thethings that make them feel great but unfortunately people don't report very many feel greatmoments.

  保柏的医学总监保拉·富兰克林博士说:“人们似乎很容易就能说出使他们感觉美好的事情,但是不幸的是人们说不出多少这样的美好时刻。”

  "Feeling great can really help people improve their health and well-being. As a nation we could do alot more for our mind body and soul and that is why Bupa is launching Feel Great Britain toprovide inspiration and opportunities for Britons to enjoy their feel great moments."

  “好的心情的确有益于提高人们的健康水平,增强幸福感。作为一位国民,我们可以为我们的身体、精神、心灵健康做很多的事情,保柏发起的这项‘享受美好’活动,旨在为英国人提供灵感与机会去享受生命中的美好时刻。”
