You'll Be Happy You Read This
What makes someone happy? The World Happiness Report shows that Finland, Denmark, Norway, Iceland, and the Netherlands may have it figured out — they score highest on a "happiness scale" out of all the countries on Earth. Having a national social support network and being able to generally trust the government and fellow citizens raised those scores, the report's editors say. But plenty of measures of happiness are entirely personal, including generosity, compassion, and physical and mental health. That means there's a lot that individuals can do to de-stress and make themselves happier.
