Move to Hawaii Island! According to a recent national study by WalletHub, a personal finance website, Hawaii ranks number one in the nation for overall happiness among its residents.

Results were derived via a survey that compared emotional and physical well-being, work environment, and community and natural environment of residents in all 50 states. They approached the study in this way saying, “Previous studies have found that good economic, emotional, physical and social health are all key to a well-balanced and fulfilled life.” With the highest scores for emotional and physical well-being and the lowest for adult depression, Hawaii is the happiest state of all, the study concluded!
