Happiness comes from a combination of internal and external factors. One thing that doesn’t drive happiness is money. Happiness only increases with wealth up to an annual income of $75,000. But one thing that can have a big influence on how we feel about life is where we choose to live. In a recent study, WalletHub examined the 50 states across 31 key metrics, ranging from depression rate to sports participation rate to income growth. The study shows Minnesota coming in near the top in happiness… at number three! The happiest state turned out to be Hawaii. Utah came in at number two. At the bottom of the happiness scale… and the most unhappy state in the nation… West Virginia.
