London : Ann annual global UN report of happiness was published on Wednesday.
The UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network’s (SDSN) 2019 World Happiness Report ranks 156 countries by variables that support well-being, including GDP per capita, social support, healthy life expectancy, social freedom, generosity and absence of corruption.
According to the report, Pakistan is now the 1st happiest place on South Asia and 67th on the Earth. Similarly, Bhutan is second and Nepal is in third position in South Asia.
The World Happiness Report actually says a lot of things in a huge-ass report you won’t read to save your life. For example, it believes that the rise in a nation’s standard of living won’t always be directly proportional to its citizen’s happiness. At some point, it will inverse. Which basically translates to ‘More money does not a more happy person make’. It is likely, rather, that it makes you more stressed, and we all know what that does to people.
The report also suggests that increased social media usage has been linked to lower happiness levels in adolescents.
