The Fiji TimesBehind the News: Happiness in the air

Fiji is the happiest country in the world.

That was the final thought of a study by WIN/Gallup International Organization released in December 2014.

Evidently, an astonishing 64,000 individuals from 65 nations globally were spoken with to make that study a fact.

As well as in the long run it discovered that 93 percent of Fijians were either “pleased” or “extremely pleased” with their lives.

When I initially found out about the study results I went: “Genuine? 2014? Yeah right!”

No offense!

I recognize we are a lot of pleased go fortunate individuals and also occasionally we ignore tomorrow, however were we truly the happiest individuals in the world?

In 2014?

A short article that was created by Yahoo claimed the reasons Fijians were the happiest lot were: the landscapes, the society, the food, kava and also blah blah blah.

According to web site among the reasons we asserted number 1 place was the truth that we “have fantastic weather condition”.

The web site took place to state: “Fiji has a lot of rainfall as well – around 368mm in March – indicating its plants are plentiful and also everybody is well-fed”.

Recalling currently, absolutely nothing large occurred in 2014 to make us pleased, other than Fiji’s basic political elections of September 17, held 8 years after Fiji’s 4th successful stroke (2006).

The media went abuzz, feeding public craze over some firsts produced by brand-new constitutional plans Fijians did not choose however were required to adhere to.

These consisted of a deracialised selecting system in which the whole nation created a solitary body politic and also made use of open-list symmetrical depiction.

A couple of years after the “joy measure” a post released at the end of 2017 specified that international studies revealed Fiji had actually been placed as the happiest nation in the world.

We had actually covered the joy index in the international end-of-year study on “hope, positive outlook and also joy”.

That year an Australian online write-up connected Fijians’ joy standing to 11 points.

3 of them were credited to the truth that we “state bula to everybody”, “survive on Fiji time” and also “welcome society”.

All acknowledgments appears to have actually claimed Fiji is tiny island nation in the South Pacific, however its individuals have large hearts.

The joy study was started by Dr George Gallup, creator of the renowned Gallup Survey.

His studies offered Fiji’s tourist market a chance to boost its tourist photo and also create even more income with happiness-oriented rebranding efforts and also mottos like “Open for joy”, “Where joy satisfies you” and also extremely lately – “Where joy comes normally”.

Allowed’s admit it.

Fiji is stunning.

In addition to that, what makes Fiji incredibly prominent is its individuals.

We are recognized for our large hearts and also grins, friendliness, and also our one-of-a-kind society and also worths, which are fixated the family members and also deep feeling of area.

However were we really pleased around 2014 and also 2017, as proclaimed by global studies and also enthusiastic tourist mottos?

To me, our state of joy and also web content ought to be validated by something greater than simply us addressing in studies that we more than happy.

Joy should be truly really felt in us and also we have to share it therefore.

It should be seen in our acts and also kind acts.
