Colorado Is the Second Happiest State In The U.S., Duh
It probably comes as no surprise to you (you're smiling right now, aren't you?) that the 2012 Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index has ranked Colorado as the second happiest state in the country, next to Hawaii. The yearly report surveys 1,000 people each day for 350 days out of the year, asking them questions about work environment, physical health, emotional health, lifestyle behaviors like exercise and smoking, access to things like health care and food, and overall life satisfaction. We win. Again.
