How happy are you? How happy are your neighbors?
Have you ever stopped and truly thought about it?
How happy are you? How happy is your community? How happy is your city, state, country?
Well, if you live next to this couple, probably not very happy. Plus they live right here in the U.S.A. so you better bet the U.S.A. didn’t nab a top seat on the 2015 World Happiness Report.
Not making the top of the list doesn’t make me very happy. It’s a vicious cycle I suppose.
The first report, launched in 2012, was huge and regarded as the first official survey of global happiness. According to UBC, it “contains analysis from leading experts in the fields of economics, neuroscience, national statistics, and describes how measurements of subjective well-being can be used to assess national progress effectively.”
Which is cool and all, and I totally believe them, but what I really want to know is who came in first — and who came in last:
THE HAPPIEST COUNTRIES ON EARTH
Here are the top 5 Happiest Countries as defined by 2015 World Happiness Report.
1. Switzerland (video above)
Congratulations to all the winners — how open are you about my family and I moving somewhere inside of you?
And here are the Least Happiest Countries:
Actually, this isn’t part of the report. It totally should be and I feel really unhappy that they want to just focus on the winners. Of course they’re happy; they won. I mean, what happened to including everyone? SHARING? You know, like we were taught when we were kids?
How can you expect us to climb the ranks to the top when we have no idea how far we need to climb??
WHO ARE YOU TO JUDGE US????
Anyway, did you make the list? If so, can you tell me how it feels?
If you didn’t make the list, there’s always next year I suppose. As long as, you know, the world doesn’t end or something.
