From: BKs at Strategies for Overcoming Depression Seminars

I did a search on the "happiness" and it comes out many times in this forum all over, including this thread.

So a strategy for overcoming depression would be to dispatch all BKs to Vanuatu :mrgreen: The secret of Vanuatu's happiness

According to a new "happy planet index" published by the New Economics Foundation (NEF). Happy Planet Index

Colombia's in 2nd place (maybe everyone's high there :D ), India is 62nd, UK is 108th, Oz 139th, US is 150th out of 178 countries.

Here is another Index Global Peace Index

Global Peace Index

India is 107th, UK is 49th, Oz 27th, US is 97th out of 140 countries.

Somehow the Happy Planet Index and The Global Peace Index do not match. So happiness and peace do not go together ? :D
