So what are the happiest countries?!
Finland has been named the world’s happiest country in 2022! And this is not the first time the country has won the prestigious title; it is the fifth year in a row! Denmark (second), Iceland (third), Switzerland (fourth), and the Netherlands round out the top five (fifth). Luxembourg, Norway, Israel, and New Zealand round out the top ten.
In addition, the World Happiness Report will celebrate its tenth anniversary in 2022. It assesses happiness based on three main factors: life evaluations, positive emotions, and negative emotions. The rankings are based on life assessments.
This year’s World Happiness Report paid special attention to specific daily emotions in light of the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on people’s lives.
“Finland continues to occupy the top spot, one of five Nordic countries in the top ten,” according to the World Happiness Report.
Why Finland is the happiest country?
Finland is one of the most beautiful places on the planet in terms of natural beauty. Finland is stunning, with vast swaths of pristine forest and an abundance of crystal-clear lakes, as well as the wildlife they support. When low pollution levels and clean air are factored in, it is clear what Finland has to offer its citizens. Many people believe that it is the natural beauty of the area that makes it such a wonderful place to visit. Being in nature and getting out into it has long been known to make us happier. It’s no surprise that people in Finland are upbeat because there’s so much to see and do outside.
Austria, Australia, Ireland, Germany, and Canada are the next five happy countries on the list, following the top ten. While the United States is now ranked 16th in the world (up from 19th last year), the United Kingdom is ranked 17th. Czechia is ranked 18th, followed by Belgium (19th) and France (20th).
The ten countries with the greatest drops, according to the report, were Lebanon, Venezuela, Afghanistan, Lesotho, Zimbabwe, Jordan, Zambia, India, Mexico, and Botswana.
Afghanistan comes in at 146th place on the list.
