A new survey looked at how our mood shifts during the day. And on weekdays, we're at our happiest between 6:00 and 9:00 P.M., because we finally get to unwind from work. On weekends, we start feeling good a lot earlier, around 11:00 A.M.

The survey also asked people to name the top things that can instantly put you in a good mood. Here are the top ten . . .

1. A good night's sleep.

2. When the sun comes out.

3. Going for a walk.

4. Getting a compliment.

5. Finding money in your pocket.

6. Getting a hug.

7. Good weather on the weekend.

8. The sound of birds chirping.

9. Flowers in bloom.

10. Having a snack. A few more that just missed the top ten are hearing the words "I love you" . . . eating a home-cooked meal . . . sleeping in . . . the smell of fresh-cut grass . . . finishing work early . . . and bumping into an old friend.
