Wish You Very Happy ‘World Happiness Day’
It is ‘World Happiness Day’ today, i.e March 20th and while you might wonder why a day is required to celebrate something we should feel everyday, it is important to have a healthy check on how ‘happy’ are people in this world.
Prior to this wonderful day, the Sustainable Development Solutions Network for the United Nations put out a World Happiness Report on 14th March which ranks countries based on, you guessed it right, how happy they are!
World’s Happiest Countries Based on UN Report 2018
Let’s have a look at the top ten happiest countries in the world which are on top of UN Report ranking:
The country is literally in the top of part of the world and according to the reports, also the happiest country in the world. Also, bonus point, Finland also leads the way in having the happiest immigrants as well.
Another gorgeous European piece of land is on number 2 of this list.
This country offers its people a wonderful standard of living.
Who knew that one could find happiness in a country which doesn’t make it to the news so often? Guess that speaks a lot about how people are pretty happy living there!
Are cheese, Swiss Alps and the delicious Swiss chocolates the secret to true happiness?
Good income, clean air, immigrant friendly are just some of the attributes that put it on the sixth spot.
It literally has a ‘mini’ India in its heart and the beautiful land gives back in abundance to the people who call it home.
8. New Zealand
Lying at the bottom of the map is this small Kiwi land which is apparently responsible for giving its people many beautiful reasons to be happy.
Another Scandinavian land on the list is Sweden. Super friendly people, and a wonderfully high standards of quality life.
Aussies sure know how to lead a life of happiness. After all, it surely one of the most advanced countries in the world.
The ‘Happiest Countries in the World List‘ is based and calculated on a cumulative score of following factors:
- Healthy life expectancy
- Social support
Not many are aware of this amazing fact but the whole concept of having a dedicated day to happiness as actually initiated by the beautiful country Bhutan, where happiness is a major mode of measurement to mark progress.
The Prime Minister of Bhutan planted the seed in the UN and gave the idea for this day back in 2011. This survey takes into account around 117 countries. India is sadly on number 133 and shockingly enough, our neighbour Pakistan is way ahead of us at number 75 in the ranking.
Well, a nation is built with the quality of people living in it and while the daily dose of stress does dampen the spirit of an individual, there is no way that you cannot have your own celebration. So we suggest let’s make someone happy today, let’s tell people who we love that they are important and let us do something that truly makes us happy.
