When I was about 50, I read a report called the World Happiness Index. I can’t remember exactly what led me to the site, but it’s since published its 10-year anniversary report and it can be found here. The report says it “uses global survey data to report how people evaluate their own lives in more than 150 countries worldwide. The World Happiness Report 2022 reveals a bright light in dark times . . . ” so it may be worth a read if you are curious.
An excerpt: “While interest in happiness has mushroomed over the 10 years of World Happiness reports, the global average of national life evaluations has been relatively stable . . . remarkably resilient during COVID-19. For the young, life satisfaction has fallen, while for those over 60, it has risen—with little overall change. Worry and stress have risen—by 8% in 2020 and 4% in 2021 compared with pre-pandemic levels.”
But the report itself is not exactly what this post is about….
