There are many different factors that can contribute to a person’s happiness, and what makes one person happy may not necessarily make another person happy.

Some of the most common factors that are associated with happiness include:

  1. Positive relationships: People who have strong, supportive relationships with friends and family tend to be happier than those who are socially isolated.
  2. Meaningful work: People who find meaning and purpose in their work tend to be happier than those who do not.
  3. Good health: People who take care of their physical and mental health tend to be happier than those who do not.
  4. Gratitude: People who cultivate a sense of gratitude and focus on the good things in their life tend to be happier than those who focus on the negative.
  5. Personal growth: People who set goals and work towards personal growth tend to be happier than those who do not.
  6. Positive mindset: People who have a positive mindset and are optimistic tend to be happier than those who have a negative outlook on life.

Happiness is a complex and multifaceted emotion, and different people may find happiness in different ways.

Ultimately, what makes a person happy is subjective and varies from person to person.

The World Happiness Report is a yearly publication by the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network that measures the happiness levels of countries and regions around the world.

The report uses a range of factors to assess a country’s overall happiness, including GDP per capita, social support, life expectancy, freedom to make life choices, generosity, and perceptions of corruption.

The report was first published in 2012 and has since become a widely recognized and respected measure of global happiness.
