What does San Luis Obispo and Singapore have in common?
   

San Luis Obispo and Singapore made it to the list as the top four happiest places on earth. 

According to ABC's interview with Dan Buettner who researched and published a new book, "Thrive"; Denmark and Nuevo Leon, Mexico also have the highest number of happy residents.  "Thriving is not about just being happy, but involves how one thrives day to day", the author reported.

The Danes scored high in job satisfaction.  Apparently, it's not the amount of money one makes.  An annual wage of $75,000 seemed to be the cut-off point on the balance of work and time. Workers in Denmark get to take advantage of a full six-week vacation.  When the full six weeks could not utilized, many smaller shorter vacations are recommended.

Back in San Luis Obispo, many little things make the city qualify as one of the top four.  The ease in getting to work, environmentally friendly streets, a nice balance of off-time versus working hours and more importantly, face-to-face social interaction boosted the city to the top four.

  

The dark horse in this mix is Singapore, which landed the happiest place in Asia.  Again, many elements, including tax incentives, better elderly care, stronger socialization and ties with families, and financial security are the keys to making Singapore the happiest place in Asia.

Another surprising place is Nuevo Leon, Mexico, where religion and extended family structure are prominent.

Personally, I am glad to hear that San Luis Obispo and Singapore made the list.  As a native from Singapore, I should share an additional fact - a common factor between San Luis Obispo and Singapore is the safety and low crime rates in both places. 

Here are some snapshots of lovely scenes in Singapore ~ enjoy!
