A house in the Cotswolds and other signs you ‘have it all’, according to new research

‘Having it all’ is a phrase that looks different to everyone. To some people, that means loving your job while to others, it means having no job at all. Some people think jetting all over the world is the equivalent of having it all, while others are more than content never leaving the country.

However, in an attempt to pinpoint what exactly ‘having it all’ might look like in the modern age, Müller Yogurt & Desserts commissioned a survey of 2,000 Brits to find out what they think ‘having it all’ really means.

At the top of the list was loving your job, with 38 per cent of respondents agreeing this achievement was synonymous with ‘having it all’. Near the top of the list were being able to travel business class, deciding on the hours you work and having perfect teeth. Also on the list were having a holiday home in the Cotswolds and having well-behaved children.

We’d go as far to say that there really is no such thing as having it all – and in fact 81 per cent of people confessed that while it’s nice to dream, in reality, they doubt anyone truly has it all (although interestingly, 15 per cent of those surveyed reckon they themselves do ‘have it all’).
