Not so long ago, Mamamia kicked off a happiness survey to see how our readers were doing.
We wanted to see what your lives were like. What kept you kicking throughout the day. And then we wanted to try and find some solutions for you to make your life that little bit happier – if it needed to be.
Here’s what we discovered…
Most of you are aged between 30 and 45, and have kids that are aged between 0 and three years old (kids that young? We feel for you).
41.7% of you have done something crazy or adventurous in the last six months, which is pretty great – and about 34.5% of you sometimes get a good night’s sleep.
But here’s where it gets a bit worrying.
Even those of you who work full-time or part-time rarely get time to themselves throughout the work day – only 39.9% of you.
37.6% of you sometimes feel anxious or overwhelmed. And 31.9% of you OFTEN feel anxious or overwhelmed.
This probably comes down to the fact that 28.8% of you guys feel like your lives are often ruled by your kids. As a result, you’re not exercising as much as you want to – 36.1% say they exercise “rarely” – and you’re also not eating as well as you could be, with 39.5% saying that they’d like to eat better some of the time.
