Utah Is the Happiest State

If you want to be happy, you’re in the right place!

The website WalletHub just ranked the states by happiness, based on life satisfaction, the rate of depression, the suicide rate, commute times, job security, the divorce rate, weather, and the number of things to do.

And almost all of the happiest states are clustered in the north central part of the country. Except for the state that’s an island paradise. Yeah, somehow they managed to have high scores too.

The 10 happiest states are:

  1. Utah
  2. Minnesota
  3. North Dakota
  4. Hawaii
  5. Colorado
  6. Idaho
  7. Iowa
  8. Nebraska
  9. South Dakota
  10. California

Utah came in 4th in ‘Emotional and Pysical Wellbeing,” 1st in “Work Enviroment,” and 2nd in Community & Enviroment.

Not too shabby Utah!

We already knew this, Lexi & I talk about how great Utah is all the time, and we both grew up & lived in other places! We know a lot Utah natives who take Utah for granted, but now we have science backing us up! We’re number 1 guys!

And the 10 least happy states are

  1. West Virginia
  2. Alabama
  3. Kentucky
  4. Mississippi
  5. Arkansas
  6. Louisiana
  7. Tennessee
  8. Oklahoma
  9. Michigan
  10. Missouri
