WILMINGTON, Del., April 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Consumers around the country are experiencing a "fun deficit," and Hispanics are no exception. According to a new Chase Freedom Unlimited Card survey, nearly all Hispanic respondents (96%) say they believe fun is important in their day, and almost two-thirds (59%) say they feel limited in their ability to live a fun, happy life.
Only close to half of Hispanic respondents (43%) say they're having enough fun, and furthermore, 42% limit their own fun, intentionally.
Dr. Emma Seppälä, Stanford University expert on the science of happiness, health and success, says that the ability to inject small, incremental moments of fun and happiness into your daily life is key to reducing stress.
"If we focus on boosting fun and happiness in our lives, even in little ways, research suggests we can end up more productive, charismatic, energetic and innovative," said Dr. Seppälä. "The Chase Freedom Unlimited Card survey results suggest that there are unlimited opportunities for fun in everyday moments, experiences and things."
Dr. Seppälä, author of The Happiness Track,Stanford psychologist and TEDx speaker, partnered with Chase to share her research on why happiness and fun in our lives matter and to provide tips to add a little more fun to our day.
"Our customers use their cards for the essentials in life and enjoy their cash back for fun things," said Pam Codispoti, President of Chase Branded Cards. "Our new Freedom Unlimited card gives people 1.5% cash back on everything they buy and they can use their cash back for little things like coffee or save them up for a larger event like a spa day."
