In surprising defiance to the current economic downturn, Brits appear happier today than they were nine years ago, according to a recent study by netdoctor.co.uk, the UK’s leading health and wellbeing website.

The research, based on a survey with more than 1,570 respondents across the country, provides an interesting snapshot of today’s mood of the nation.

Despite the current doom and gloom and UK’s crumbling economy, only 35% of those surveyed are unhappier than usual and only 17% believe the future is hopeless. Surprisingly, only 17% of Brits surveyed are unhappy at the office and only 21% believe their lives are out of control.

The results are even more intriguing when compared with netdoctor.co.uk’s last Happiness survey in 2000. Back then only 33% thought the future was bright with 23% believing there was no light at the end of the tunnel; 26% were unhappy at the office and 27% felt their life was chaotic and out of control.
