Healthy + Wealthy = Happy

In my final (at least for now) post about happiness, I am examining the link between healthiness, financial security and happiness. We asked 10,000 U.S. consumers if they agreed with these statements:

  • I am typically happy
  • I am financially secure
  • I am healthy

I then examined which groups of consumers are the happiest.

Here’s what we found:

  • Financially secure people are the happiest (92% are happy)
  • Healthiness has a larger impact on happiness than financial security; happy people are more than twice as likely as unhealthy people to be happy .
  • People that are neutral on financial security and healthiness are only a little happier than unhealthy and financially insecure people.

The bottom line: I hope that you are healthy and financial secure!
