According to the survey, nearly two out of three women get more of a boost from warm weather than retail therapy, chocolate and even sex.
64 percent rate sunshine as providing the best feelgood factor while 47 percent said the same of a trip to the hairdresser, the Sun reported.
The survey also found that compliments also work with a simple “you look nice today” working wonders for 41 percent of women, while a nice text message gave 35 percent a boost.
The survey of 1,000 British women aged from 25 to 45 was carried out by the soft drinks company Appletiser, which has launched a new handbag-sized bottle for girls for its Sparkle On campaign.
Only 11 per cent said eating chocolate was an instant pick-me-up, and sex did not score much higher - with only 15 percent saying bedroom antics were the most likely activity to give them a lift.
