Happiness is really a state of mind, isn’t it? But according to Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, the state that you live in can predict your happiness level. According to this map, you’re much likely to be very happy if you live in the midwest or certain parts of the northeast United States.

Of course, this map is all based on averages. I’d count myself as pretty darned happy, despite living in the “midrange” happiness state of Georgia. How does your happiness stack up to the state you live in?
