GETTING an online delivery earlier than expected and taking a good selfie have been ranked by Brits as life's 'little wins'.

A poll of 2,000 adults found the top 50 everyday moments which spark joy in people's lives.

The list includes getting an extra hour in bed and finding money in an old coat pocket.

Other joyous moments include waking up and realising it's the weekend, getting a free item in a takeaway and winning a virtual quiz.

The poll also found that Brits enjoy an average of three unexpected pleasures every week.

The research was commissioned by wine company Barefoot as part of its Virtual Cheers campaign.

Some Brits said working from home, cleaning the kitchen and keeping a cactus alive was their little win.

More than half have been known to share their 'little wins' with others – with 53 per cent doing so over the phone and a fifth broadcasting the news on social media.

Three in five also like to see and hear about other people's moments of joy, with 58 per cent feeling happy for them when they learn of their success.

One in 10 even admitted that the 'little wins' are better than spending time with their other half.

60 per cent said an unexpected joyous moment has the power to help them forget anything negative, while 86 per cent believe it's important to appreciate the 'little things' in life.

A spokesman for Barefoot Wine said: "Now more than ever it's important that we appreciate the little moments in life.

"This research shows that celebrating the little wins can really make a difference – whether that's starting the day with sun, having a weekend lie-in or winding down and having a glass of wine at the end of the week.

"Barefoot Wine has always been about celebrating positivity and raising a glass to the everyday little wins, which is why we're encouraging people all around the country to raise a 'virtual cheers' every Saturday to celebrate the little things with family and friends."
