๐Ÿ˜Š Happiest Activities According to Science

Yes, apparently there is a list now... where has this been all my life?

๐Ÿ“– Reading Material

I recently finished a book called ๐Ÿ“š Don't Trust Your Gut by Seth Stephens. He used data science to back up all his findings from relationships to happiness.

๐Ÿ“ƒ Happiest Activities Ranked

The top ten happiest activities involve a lot of nature and exploration which I found interesting.

โŒ Overrated Activities

You will see a theme here, not a lot of body movement and not a lot of brain power required to do these activities.

๐Ÿ’ค Sleeping/Resting/Relaxing

I would have thought this would be higher on the list but ranks #29 out of 40.

๐ŸŽฎ Computer Games

I don't play many video games anymore because I used to get heavily addicted. This ranks at #22.

๐Ÿ“บ Watching TV

I watch a decent amount of TV so it was sad to see it at #21.

๐Ÿ’ป Browsing the Internet

Ranking at #31, I am shocked that this is not higher, but it makes sense because you are in total zombie mode.

๐Ÿ‚ Happiest Nature

It does make sense that the environment influences your happiness, especially dependent on the outdoor environment. Here are the top 5:

โ›ต Marine and coastal - water on the coast!

๐Ÿ—ป Mountains - get to hiking!

๐Ÿช“ Woodland - I am assuming this is just trees? lol

๐ŸŒณ Grassland - walk around some meadows!

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŒพ Farmland - ย this may be where I draw the line.. ๐Ÿ‘€

  1. If you are tempted to cancel plans with friends, don't. Keep this list in mind, you will be happier with friends over watching TV.
  2. Have sex ... outside!
