Lol. It is the same category as chocolates and ice cream.

My husband first and then fresh coffee, chocolate and ice cream to give me the energy to get out there in the morning and engage with life while walking the woods and listening to bird calls, and finally read and write before I use that soft and comfy bed. No reason to pick one, they are all important for my well-being.

Morning, fresh coffee, reading and writing, energy to get out the door while thinking about a walk in the woods. (No partner and I'd have to remember my hearing aids for the bird calls)

My 4 y/o Son waking me up every morning to tell me he loves me, the housekeeper made the coffee and squeezed the orange juice and the baker delivered the fresh rolls!

Health, mobility, and the ability to 'enjoy' freedom. (Sometimes apart from DS)

If some thing important is missing in the poll what would it be.

Three more options:
1) health (most important to me)
2) wealth (very important to some people)
3) your nest (the home or apartment you live in)

That's easy - health. You can have tons of money, live in a perfect place, have a great home life/spouse, but if your health goes bad, none of that matters. Health is transitory, as we get older it often goes south. So I cherish every day that I wake up still rarin' to go.

Hmm. What happens when the 4 yearly old is grown, housekeeper quits, and the baker retires?
I agree though that my feeing of well-being also comes from a neatly mowed yard, thanks to landscaping service.
