A study has pinpointed 11:17 a.m. Monday morning as the time we feel most unhappy — in case you needed proof.
Less than a quarter of respondents feel at their best before midday, while 2:35 p.m. is the happiest time of the day, according to a study of 2,000 people by British broadband and telephone provider Plusnet.
The Daily Mail originally reported the story.
The study also highlighted the encounters that were most or least likely to brighten someone's day. Seventy-five percent of respondents saw cutting in line as the annoying behavior most likely to dampen their mood, while doing a good deed was most likely to improve one's disposition, said 47 percent of respondents.
Stumbling across a bargain, compliments from a stranger, getting a letter and being greeted by a pet also topped the study, part of an advertising campaign for Plusnet Internet services called #LovesYouBack. Another top pet peeve was when others forget to say "thank you."
In the spirit of making Mondays less dreadful, the company allows customers to nominate a colleague who brightens their day on social media with the hashtag #LovesYouBack.
