How do you measure happiness


The documentary about happiness sharing by Denmark and Finland shows that

Happiness is special state if we chase the special conditions we need to be happy.
Happiness is ordinary state if we choose to be glad even if things are not going on our way.
Just accept things if that is fact of life.
Beside, people think good relationship plays key part to be happy. The relationship means we have people to rely on when needing help, and to share joy and worries. If we feel self valued, self realization, freedom.
A pleasant, warm and friendly social environment, natural environment and atmosphere is also the keys to create happiness and reduce stress.
Balance of life ( working and leisure, family life with working life ) is their requirements to stay satisfied with their life.

What does it take to be happy? The Nordic countries seem to have it all figured out. Finland and Denmark have consistently topped the United Nations’ most prestigious index, The World Happiness Report, in all six areas of life satisfaction: income, healthy life expectancy, social support, freedom, trust and generosity.

Happiness might seem like an elusive concept to quantify, but there is a science to it. When researchers talk about “happiness,” they’re referring to “satisfaction with the way one’s life is going,” Jeff Sachs, co-creator of the World Happiness Report and a professor at Columbia University, tells CNBC Make It. “It’s not primarily a measure of whether one laughed or smiled yesterday, but how one feels about the course of one’s life,” he says. Since the report began in 2012, Nordic countries — which include Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland, plus the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Aland — consistently turn up at the top of the list. (The United States, on the other hand, typically lands somewhere around 18th or 19th place.)
