If you live in the UK or America, then it might be bad news to look at their happiness ratings. But if you want to be happy, maybe look at the lifestyle of the average student, resident and worker of Finland.
The nation has featured at the top of many studies of the world’s happiest nations.
Tourism bosses in Finland, which has been crowned the “world’s happiest country” for the fifth consecutive year by the World Happiness Report, have launched the unique retreat in a bid to help people reconnect with their happiness.
Participants will travel to the Lakeland region with a host of happiness living.
During the stay, guests enjoy calming sounds and music, eat soul and body food, learn about nature crafts, exercise in forests and lakes.
10 lucky people can access this via a two-phase application process, with plans to potentially roll it out online down the line.
According to Visit Finland, the ideal applicants will be “outgoing people who are interested in comprehensive wellbeing and Finnish nature.
“You don’t have to be a self-help enthusiast or have survival skills in Finnish nature. All we want is an open mind.”
A tourism spokesperson said: “We believe Finnish happiness stems from a close relationship with nature and our down-to-earth lifestyle: it’s not some mystical state, but a skill that can be learned and shared.”
Applications for the happiness masterclass are now open and close on 2 April 2023.
According to the World Happiness Report, which is produced each spring by the UN’s Sustainable Development Solutions Network, using data from the Gallup World Poll, low crime rates, an abundance of natural beauty, an emphasis on community and co-operation, universal health care, and few people living in poverty are all thought to contribute to the Finnish nation’s happiness.
