In this edition of EmpowHER's "HER Daily Dose", Bailey Mosier examines a survey that claims that Americans are happier now than ever before. Are you happy?
Hi, I’m Bailey Mosier. This is your EmpowHER HER Daily Dose.
According to a new Gallup study, Americans are the happiest they've been since 2008, coming in with a 79.9 emotional health index score.
The researchers conducted 30,000 interviews every month between 2008 and 2012 and asked participants to answer a number of questions about their emotions over the previous day, including: whether they experienced worry, enjoyment or stress; whether they experienced sadness or happiness; whether they learned something interesting or participated in something interesting; whether they smiled or laughed; whether they were angry; whether they were treated with respect; and whether they were diagnosed with depression.
