well are you living in a happy "state" of mind and body?
apparently I've moved to one of the most un happiest...
If ever you needed proof that sun and the ocean are good for the soul, this is it: Hawaii has been voted America's happiest state in a new poll.
But if you live in West Virginia you may become even crankier on reading that the state finished dead last in the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index.
The survey of 352,840 adults in all 50 states looked at six categories of well-being.

Thank-you for sharing the interesting information.
The one thing is that after skimming the article, I didn't see an obvious link to take me to all 50 on the list. I was looking for that because the state I am most interested in didn't appear on either "top 10" list they featured. I think it curious they wouldn't obviously link to the full list in some way.
Oh well; I still thank-you for sharing this! Have a good rest of your day and spread the smiles to make it happier!
florida was in the top 3 until we got all those new yorkers and boston boneheads that cant drive!
Hmm. I'm surprised that the disgraceful Massachusetts isn't at the bottom of the "happy list". Oh well... all I know is it's a pretty miserable, disgraceful, depressing, and disgusting state. I think I'll make my own lists: A. The Happy List (Anyone Not Living in Massachusetts) and B. The Miserable List (Anyone Living in Massachusetts). Massachusetts does have its good points, I guess: Fewer bugs ("and the like") than states that are warmer, and slightly less snow than (I guess) Buffalo.
(Add my name to the sun-deprived, cranky, low-well-being, group - if nobody's already picked up on that. )
