How are you feeling today? Our emotions can vary considerably depending on many factors, including our health, wealth, relationships and where we live. But sometimes we need to take a step back and think about what happiness really means and how we can find it.

Maybe we should take a leaf out ofFinland’s book– last year the UN’s World Happiness Report found the country to be the happiest place on Earth. The report looked at ‘subjective well-being’. That’s how happy people feel they are and why – based on factors such as, economic strength, social support, life expectancy, freedom of choice, generosity, and perceived corruption.
