Britons may not be renowned for their sunny dispositions – but there could be a good reason for that.
A survey has found we endure an average of 84 bad days a year, triggered by all manner of mishaps and misfortunes.
Top of the list of problems that bring us down is a bad night’s sleep, which was cited by 45 per cent of the 2,000 people surveyed. This was followed by losing a wallet or purse (35 per cent) and smashing a phone (also 35 per cent).
Losing keys (34 per cent) or having a tiff with our other half (32 per cent) also tipped us into a bad mood, along with stepping in dog mess (29 per cent) and having a bad hair day (16 per cent).
Trying on a new outfit only to find it is too tight or does not look good saddened 30 per cent of us while getting a bad haircut annoyed 13 per cent.
The study also showed that many of us believe in bad luck, with 36 per cent avoiding opening an umbrella indoors and 43 per cent thinking the power of the planets in astrology can contribute to a poor day.
