How happy are you?
What's the happiness index of our nation?
How to keep your husband/girlfriend/significant other happy.
The questioning and probing of how happy we deem ourselves to be is gathering pace with a new wave of government surveys and apps such as ‘Track Your Happiness’, which some may argue take the whole notion beyond a happy medium.
According to these recent surveys our happiness as a nation sits at 7.4 which will no doubt be given a boost for anyone that’s managed to pick up a copy of The Church of London’s happy January newspaper The Good Times, which was rather aptly published on the alleged most depressing day of the year, January 16.
According to the website, this new slant on the news is sourced globally through social media channels, seeking out the people and organisations who are giving us reasons to be cheerful about the troubled times we live in, covering everything from politics to the arts.
Put together in just a week, the newspaper is filled with beautiful illustrations and a healthy dose of good news to brighten up the dark days of January, which may otherwise be solely remembered for a fatally flippant cruise captain and another blow to our fashionable French neighbour’s credit rating.
If you’ve not managed to get your hands on a copy you can still view the online version here. Or, if you prefer your dose of happiness short and snappy we’d recommend investing in one of these cheery prints that we found during our own Google search for happiness.
