Our state maintained the No. 1 status for well being for the 3rd year in a row. The data is based on daily surveys conducted from January to December 2011. Hawaii’s high scores on the Emotional Health and Healthy Behaviors Indexes helped us to keep the top spot.
In the Emotional Health Index, it states that Hawaii residents were the most likely to say they smiled or laughed a lot “yesterday” and were the least likely to report daily worry, stress, or depression. As for the Healthy Behaviors Index, good eating and exercise habits, along with lower smoking rates, clinched the top spot there.
