The UN’s World Happiness Report named Finland the happiest country in the world for the sixth time. Denmark is in second place and Iceland is in third place. The question is why the citizens of Finland are happier than people of other countries. Do they have a lot of money? Or is the way of life different? A psychologist from Finland answered these questions. If you adopt these, you can also stay happy.
There are many special features in Finland, which is why it remains at the top. As if there wasn’t much of a difference between the highest earners and the lowest earners. There is freedom of choice and there is less corruption. People help each other a lot. There is a good healthcare system. Public transport is quite reliable and cheap.
Psychologist Frank Martela gave other reasons to be happy. People here live according to one principle. Live for yourself, not for the expectations of others. People here are less worried. Because they don’t feel a great need for anything. You have easy access to everything you need.
Another aspect that distinguishes people in Finland is their willingness to help others. They are always looking for a way to help. You think it turns you on. Stay happy. Positivity also arises from those who support you. If you are an expert in something, share your knowledge with other people in society. Many people benefit from it.
One theory is very popular in Finland. Here too, students help 3 people every day. Be it giving the postman a glass of water, spending the afternoon with the grandparents or helping a tourist find his way around. It sounds simple, but it brings endless joy. Your morale increases. Research shows that when you spend more time with your friends and family, you live longer.
The word talkoot is very popular in Finland. It means doing something together that no one can do alone. Like working together in the fields. Spending time in the barn. All neighbors gather voluntarily. They do great work together and then cook food together. We sit together and eat. It’s like a tradition. People enjoy living together like good neighbors.
In search of peace and tranquility, people generally seek out such places where they can spend time alone. But in Finland people spend quiet time together. Here people are silent, but live together with many people. In his opinion, being together in silence conveys a feeling of connection and love. It is pleasant to go to sea beaches or quiet places with your father or friends and enjoy the view of nature there.
