Happiness is the most important thing in life. A lot of factors can influence your happiness, such as your relationships, work, friends, and quality of life.

There is no perfect equation to happiness. Life is different for everybody, and we all want different things. For my life, Colorado has the perfect recipe for happiness. The people are incredibly kind, there are a ton of things to do, and it is remarkably beautiful in the Centennial State.

Believe it or not, many Coloradans do not feel the same way. In a new ranking by WalletHub, Colorado is less happy than most states in America.

Colorado was ranked the 31st happiest state in America. In 2020, Colorado ranked 23rd. That's a massive drop. WalletHub looked at three major categories: emotional and physical well-being, work environment, and community.

Colorado ranked worst in the community and environment section at #45. Safety, weather, and low volunteer rates are what give Colorado this low ranking.

Colorado Is Best At These Two Things


Coloradans know how to prioritize sleep, according to this new study. Colorado has the highest adequate sleep rate compared to every other state.

Additionally, Colorado has the highest sports participation rate. Coloradans are active, and I am assuming that statistic is going to remain in the top five for years to come.
