You've probably heard the saying "a little goes a long way" . . . because it can apply to a LOT of stuff, from kindness and patience . . . to chili powder and ketchup . . . to lubricant. For a garage door. (???)
In a new poll, 72% of people believe that it's the "littlest things" in life that can bring the most joy. People say those pleasures can remind them of "what's really important" . . . boost mental health . . . and help them "live in the moment."
People were also asked for examples of things when "a little bit can go a long way," and the results are all over the place. Some popular answers were:
A smile . . . laughter . . . a compliment . . . a free drink . . . respect . . . a "brisk walk outside" . . . flowers . . . a piece of chocolate . . . confidence . . . a power nap . . . a candle . . .
A birthday card . . . lip balm . . . butter . . . soap . . . salt . . . a shot of espresso . . . salad dressing . . . hair gel . . . and ginger spice. (The fall flavor that everyone is obsessed with . . . NOT Geri Halliwell.) (???)
