How happy are you? What makes you happy? Could "where you live" be a big determining factor? Maybe it's time we reconsider these things and make "feeling happy" a priority in our lives again. Keep scrolling to see if you live in one of the Treasure Valley's happiest cities 👇

In 2023, what often makes people happy are the people they surround themselves with, or consuming uplifting, positive content. Think about it, we live in a world where we're always consuming some kind of content, and whether it's positive or negative, it will still have an impact on us and our attitudes etc.

But something we maybe don't think about as much, is whether or not where we live can play a role in how happy we are. There's a recent article from WalletHub that shares a complete list of the happiest cities in America, and on this list of 182 cities, there are two from the Treasure Valley.

WalletHub says, "Location plays a hand in how bright or gloomy our days are. For years, researchers have studied the science of happiness and found that its key ingredients include a positive mental state, healthy body, strong social connections, job satisfaction and financial well-being. However, money can only make you so happy – people who make $75,000 a year won’t get any higher satisfaction from more money."
