The U.S. has dropped to #14, while Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Switzerland, Finland, and the Netherlands all rank at the top. I need to go visit those countries! The USA is a story of reduced happiness. In 2007 it ranked 3rd among the OECD countries while in 2016 it ranked 19. The reasons are due to declining social support and increased corruption. Our country may be rich in finances but we are poor in mutual trust, shared purpose, generosity and good governance. It's fascinating that with the rise of social media our country as a whole feels more isolated, depressed and anxious. I'm extremely passionate about being a certified Health & Life Coach. Our people need help in being happy. At first it might seem funny that I would call myself a Happiness Coach, but these reports prove the need for it in our country.
