If you’re happy and you know it…

OK, so 2009 is over and done.  It’s January and for many time to make a fresh start; a new household budget, a weight loss program, re-dedication to a church or charity, or a determination to spend more time with friends and family.  As you make these decisions and resolutions, how do they play on your sense of well-being, your overall happiness level?  Is my decision to drop a few LBs making me happy?  Sad?  Frustrated?  Angry?

I believe I’m fortunate to live in Canada.  According to the Happy Planet Index, Canada is almost the highest ranking country in the world as far as life satisfaction goes; only Ireland, Denmark and Norway rank higher  [n.b. On an ecological footprint index, we don’t rank as high].  I’d have to agree that on the whole, I am very happy in my life and feel that 2010 will be a great year.  So where do you stand?  Are you happy?  Looking forward to the new year?  You can weigh in with your opinion by completing the polls below.
