What is global happiness? Happiness is not the result of bouncing from one joy to the next; researchers find that achieving happiness typically involves times of considerable discomfort but also great excitement. Regularly indulging in small pleasures, getting absorbed in challenging activities, setting and meeting goals, maintaining close social ties, and finding purpose beyond oneself all increase life satisfaction. It isn’t happiness per se that promotes well-being, it’s the actual pursuit that’s key.
The World Happiness Report is a landmark survey of the state of global happiness that ranks 156 countries by how happy their citizens perceive themselves to be.
The overall rankings of country happiness are based on the pooled results from Gallup World Poll surveys from 2015–2017, and show both change and stability. It contains articles, and rankings of national happiness based on respondent ratings of their own lives, which the report also correlates with various life factors.
We would like to share a Global Happiness Study conducted by Ipsos Global Advisor for you to gain insights into the things and people that give our lives meaning.
