It’s a subregion in Northern Europe with a strong, historical-cultural. Scandinavia can refer to Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. Sometimes more narrowly to the Scandinavian Peninsula.
We people experience terrible things more than good things. Being a traveler, I always live searching for happiness, and always one question hit my mind, “what thing makes me happy”? I always got the same answer “the satisfaction.” The satisfaction of doing anything. You are doing wrong or right, bad or good. If you did not get the confirmation of satisfaction, you’d not live happily.
People want to get the pursuit of happiness. What circumstances make the people happy, which could be subjective or objective aspects, like physical health, can be measured and compared?
I am going to talk about the Scandinavian people. They are the happiest folks on the planet. But how? Because the Scandinavian countries are the most successful and wealthiest societies on Earth. A high level of education, health care and safety, exceptionally makes the folks happy.

This thing amazed me when I learned this thing. This is called premium living, and that’s why Scandinavian people are the happiest people globally. A mother can take nine months of paid leave, and a father can take three months of paid leave. Amazing! If you want to take an extended leave in our countries, you’ll not get anything, and poverty is the reason for depression and depression’s cause of death.
Point to be noted here; According to the Scandinavian national website, the parents will take 80% of their salary if they get 480 days to leave. A mother can get free 60 days of childbirth coaching.
The Scandinavian folks think it’s really important mother spends time with her child.
Everything is genuinely shocked in Scandinavia. Scandinavian’s people life is easy due to the generous social program.
The question raised in my mind, what is the generous social program? And I asked it from the folks. They used to say we pay a high amount of tax due to the tax over govt. Cover many things that probably free like, in Scandinavia, school is free, healthcare is free, and child daycare is free.
Scandinavians are some of the most attractive and good–looking folks on the globe. The Scandinavian girls look adorable and stunning with natural makeup.
On the other hand, Scandinavians trust each other. Their community is vital due to their social contracts. They shared the responsibility to take care of one another and watch out for folk’s health.
The helping of each other bond makes the Scandinavian people the best in the world. The most important social time of this place, folks, is “Fika” time which means “coffee.” When they like to take coffee, they drop everything, and I observed that they do not use the phone but interact with each other because they do not like to mess with Fika time.
During my visit to Scandinavia, I learned a lot of lessons for being happy, and this is one of them, the folks of this place “want to build a healthy – organized functioning society, where folks can feel and live secure and where they can trust each other and feel gratitude. I explore this place to get some relaxation. When I talk and interact with the people of Scandinavia, I feel like I am in my homeland. Such a good experience I ever had. This article was about the happiness of the Scandinavian people. So, I covered almost everything that I learned and observed during my visit.
