A new book released The Blue Zones of Happiness: Lessons form the World’s Happiest People written by Dan Buettner offers an insight into what goes behind creating a populace which is the happiest. The writer is a journalist with National Geographic and has provided us with crucial business intelligence on why certain countries regularly top the happiness indexes. One common thing to a lot of these countries is that a generation or two back they had visionary leaders who knew that a single-minded focus on economy would lead to nowhere. Economic growth is more important for the poorer, developing countries. But for the developed west, other social factors such as mothers’ education, children’s health and play opportunities were equally important. Loneliness and unhappiness are contagious so an environment needs to be fostered where children are able to forge lifelong friendships. There is no one-single approach to achieving this as proven through the contradictory steps taken up by three countries who are routinely on top. Costa Rica achieves this through its sheer year-long perfect weather and greenery. Generous social programmes on health and education ensure Denmark is often right on top. Singapore has a different, much more structured approach aided by strong family ties and financial security.
