Jordan fell back on the global happiness index, ranking 101 out of 156 countries, according to the 2019 World Happiness Report, issued by the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Solutions Network.
For the third consecutive year, Finland ranked first as the happiest country in the world, while Burundi ranked last in 2019.
The scores are based on achievements between 2016 and 2018, relating to GDP per capita, social welfare, life expectancy, social freedom, absence of corruption, and the quality of health, education and labour markets.
Happiness is the biggest motivator for people to become productive individuals, psychological and social studies confirm.
Happiness also drives individuals towards initiative, work, speed in achievement and physical activity.
People can create happiness by setting a specific time of day to practice activities that bring them happiness, including hobbies, exercise, volunteering, and listening to music.
Happiness is also greatly dependent of the people a person surrounds himself with.
