Study: Californians adopt ‘happiness habit’
Californians, it seems, are a happy bunch as compared to most Americans.
The personal finance website WalletHub rated the Golden State fourth-highest in its happiness scale outdone only by Minnesota, Utah and Hawaii.
When it comes to emotional and physical well being, California is second. California is third with the lowest share of adult depression and fourth highest in sports participation.
California fell to 21st in the categories of work and community environment.
In its study, WalletHub’s analysts drew upon the findings of “happiness” research to determine which environmental factors are linked to a person’s overall well-being and satisfaction with life. Previous studies have found that good economic, emotional, physical and social health are all key to a well-balanced and fulfilled life.
Where we choose to live can also influence our level of happiness.
