All those states that Nugmeg haters keep telling us are better places to live?
Sorry, people don’t feel so hot there, according to the Gallup-Healthways Well-being Survey.
Among the top states, Connecticut isn’t at the top, but with a score of 67.6 more Connecticut folks are feeling better than in, say, Mississippi or Texas. The survey asks about daily enjoyment, worry, stress as well as access to health essentials, such as money for food, shelter, and medicine and a safe place to exercise. It also measures the percentage of residents who smoke, exercise frequently, and eat healthy daily.
It’s important to note that the top states for feeling good about life are a mix of red, purple and blue, proving, perhaps, that politics and taxes don’t matter when it comes to happiness.
