Whether you live in Birmingham, Glasgow or London, life is a roller-coaster. We all know too well the ups and downs that make up the journey of our lives: whether it’s our life ambitions and the risks we take, or our job choices and where we decide to live. However, these experiences contribute to our definition of life, and how we evaluate what makes us happy.
8,000 Brits across the UK have had their say and are in overwhelming agreement that life is unpredictable. Despite this unpredictability, most of you are happy and very family-orientated. However, when it comes to regrets, we all have a few, and the failure to follow our dreams and not letting ourselves be happy top the scale.
When looking at what you want to achieve in life in the future, it appears that finances take precedence. Being ‘financially secure’ topped the list of things that adults like you, across the nation, want to achieve in the next five years, followed by going travelling, and getting out of debt.
