A survey has been conducted to find out what makes women feel good. Top of the list includes compliments (not a surprise) and eating cheese (a bit of a surprise).
 
The survey was conducted by Sainsbury’s, who asked 2,000 women what gives them the ‘feel good’ factor.
 
While some findings - like chocolates and flowers - were pretty obvious, there were some interseting items on the list. Having clean teeth came above going out for lunch or having your hair done, while eating cheese came ahead of getting a manicure.
 
For women who have children, hearing that they are clever or well behaved makes them feel good. Mums also love getting a hug from their little one after a stressful day.
 
Check out the top 40 ‘feel good’ factors here:
