Where the happiest people live?
Once I received a recommendation for a book where the author travel around the world looking for a happy people... (I have not read it yet) and this inspired me on this question. I know that some journals publishes top list as "best places to live" and similar, but it would be interesting to see what Hubpages community think on this – where, on the Earth, the happiest people live? :-) Can any conclusion be drawn?
I love Florida, but the happiest people live in a place where they have discovered how to walk with God. Like some guy said in the Bible, "I have learned to be content in all circumstances." He wrote it from a Roman dungeon.
If you don't know what I mean . . . seek and you will find.
Hmmm...I don't think this is a question that can not be easily answered. I am sure plenty of people think that they are happy, but it is all in relative and by perception. Some may think that not having stress or worries would make them the most happy. Me, I think if that was the case I would not be happy. I live in Canada and would have to say this is one of the best places to live in the world. But that may just be my world. I think true happiness is where the heart is. So wherever your love ones are, no matter where they are will make you the most happy. I am happiest wherever I can be myself. So the answer is Canada right?
Well, in answering this question you cannot get out of your identity, so I will probably speak like a woman. I think the happiest people live in a home, where there is love and understanding and they have a room of their own. Now, I have given you economics, psychology and philosophy wrapped in that answer. This must be the best.
The happiest people live where-ever they are loved and appreciated. This could be anywhere they are needed. I don't think this is a location on the map but a place in any home where the dynamics are conductive for joy. Joy is not contingent on geography; but rather a persons inner circle. Blessings
This has actually been measured here-http://www.forbes.com/2010/07/14/world-happiest-countries-lifestyle-realestate-gallup-table.html.
The "socialist" countries are the happiest! Who would've thunk it?
Interestingly, when I was stationed in Vietnam at the height of the war in that country -- 1967-1969 -- many of its inhabitants were some of the happiest and most content people I had ever seen.
Even though they were very poor, living in primitive little villages and surrounded by war, they always demonstrated highly-positive attitudes and had a knack for turning lemons into lemonade.
Thus, I believe that what I witnessed in Vietnam served to indicate that those people who are the happiest in the world reside in every locale there is.
It is all about mind over matter.
Maybe the happiest people live in Denmark. During the last two years I spent several months in this small country, and I felt very happy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4M0iojAI … r_embedded
It depends on whether or not you are a male or female, how old you are and what particular things in life make you happy as to where the happiest place on earth is. I can say that there are certainly places that are unhappy, such as the continent of Africa. Also the Middle East countries, at least for young, white, American Christian males seeking female companionship...for some reason they lose their minds, including their heads over things like that. Perhaps it is the infidel thing. Asian countries just are not that happy a people, especially the Chinese and Japanese. So we've carved out a huge swath of territory that is not all too promising. Although, there are diamonds in the rough everywhere if you search hard enough and are willing to accept the culture you are in.
Now if you are a young American male in the military in Germany then that is one very happy place. The French are quite uppity. Spain is nice, at least the women are, but like all the places--the men are not so hospitable because of that fact. But obviously that is different for women. Italy is fantastic. Virtually all of Western Europe is splendid if you love history, art, architecture, drinking, outdoor cafes and brothels,and really interesting fun loving people which are all of my favorites.
As for South America...Mexico -- if they were so happy the people would stay in Mexico, but the national past times have become beheadings, drug trafficing, kidnapping and human smuggling. But then there is Brazil and Argentina. Brazil has some very happy people, but that is because of the "Brazilian Bikini" (which is a purely male chovanistic position I know!!) and the economy is doing well, plus the Obama administration gave them $2 billion to drill for oil, which I'm certain more Americans would have been happier with the $2 billion spent on oil production in the US.
Personally I had a fantastic time in Western Europe, but never made it to Eastern Europe...But I believe the Eastern Europeans are still pissed off because of the Russian occupation for 70 years. But hey, former commies want loving too!
But in the United States... it has to be New Orleans. It is party central USA. But in general, where ever I have lived I have found people to be genuinly kind and happy if you show them respect, attempt to speak their language and are interested in their culture and finally a great smile and an open hand always puts people at ease.
Since happiness comes from within I think that happy people live everywhere. Of course this time of year I am desperate for sunshine. I think I would be very happy any place that is 90 degrees and sunny.
In my opinion it depend on your mind. Some people getting happiness in lonelyness. some people happy with group activity. Happiness not lives in particular place or person.You have to bring Happiness yourself by changing your mind,view point. Think positively like you are the most happiest person in the world.
According to me.Most of the peoples hometown is most happiest place in the world.Because similar view point, Traditions, Culture, Taste, Society & etc. Always half-knowledge brings you unhappy.
So keep smiling and avoid negative thinking. So im the most happiest person & My hometown is most happiest place.

What kind of people live in your neighbourhood?What's going to happen to surprise us all is the dispersion of new ethnic groups all over the countries.
