Colorado Among The Top Five Happiest States

We live in Colorado for a reason, right? Lot's of sunshine, outdoor activities in the winter and the summer, one of the best concert venues, and that makes us happy. A recent Gallup-Healthways poll proved that Coloradoan's are pretty happy, the second-happiest state in fact.


Hawaii ranks No. 1 in well-being among its residents for the fourth year in a row, according to a Gallup-Healthways poll, while West Virginia for the fourth year straight is at the very bottom.

According to the poll, Aloha State residents were most likely to rate their lives as "thriving," scoring themselves high in areas such as emotional health and work environment.

So what makes a state happy?

Gallup reported that residents in happy states tend to be healthier -- they exercised more, had lower rates of diabetes and smoked less. They also tend to have higher incomes, lower unemployment and smaller rates of poverty.
