Good night's sleep is life's 'greatest little pleasure'.

Byline: ANI

London, Dec 31 (ANI): Some of the little pleasures of life have no price tag on them - just like a good night's sleep.

Curling up in bed after a long day and waking up feeling completely refreshed the following morning is so good that it has been voted life's 'greatest little pleasure', reports The Telegraph.

In the study of 3,000 Brits, a tenner in your pocket came second, closely followed by cuddling up to a loved-one in bed.

Rob Stacey spokesman for Batchelors Cup-a-Soup, which carried out the poll, said: "You can't beat the feeling of getting into bed after a long, hard day.

"And that feeling gets even better when you wake up feeling great and back to your normal self the following morning. 'We don't always need something major to happen to brighten up our day - sometimes the little things have just as much of an effect.

"Often the little gestures such as a quick cuddle or a compliment can really help to cheer someone up if they are having a bad day, and can even be more welcome than splashing out on expensive presents."
