Who are the happiest people on earth?
What does it actually take to be happy?
What happens if you are Not happy?
This trailer clip from the documentary “Happy” is a quick intro to these very interesting questions.
I once read that the income figure associated with what it takes to be happy was only $80,000 a year for an individual – anything more than this did not buy more happiness!
In the full documentary, Happy, they reveal that Japan has the largest population of Un-happy people and they are actually dying of exhaustion, a term called Karoshi, which literally means death from overwork.
Death by Karoshi has struck even those under the age of 30 who did not previously report any illness. Stress induced heart attacks and strokes are the most common presentations for this industrial age disease.
On the opposite side of the of this issue, and in the neighboring island of Okinawa, we find the largest population of individuals who live to be more than 100 years old!
Denmark is another country which is reported to have the happiest people on earth.
What are their secrets?
One gal from Okinawa at the age of 104 says at first it was Saunas, but now its sleep and sake!
One gal from Denmark says its community, laughter, and compassion!
The message is certainly clear; working hard, long hours to make money for material gains and living in isolation or with very few family or friends, is Not Good For You.
The recipe for health and well-being?
Finding communities filled with folks who work and laugh together and plenty of time to rest, maybe even drink a sake, every day…is Good For You!
