Finland is landlocked to the north. Finland shares land borders with Norway and Russia. Norway to the north and Russia to the east. Gulf of Finland to the south and Gulf of Bothnia to the west.

There are thousands of tiny, rocky islands off Finland’s southwest coast. How many of them are inhabited? The most important of these is the Åland Islands at the mouth of the Gulf of Bothnia.

It is almost always sunny from May to July in Finland’s polar regions. This happens because it is located in the polar region. Then there is a crowd of tourists to see the night sun. Many tourists flock to Finland’s central forests for thrilling adventures.

The Secrets of Finland’s Happiness

In 1860 there was a famine in Finland; It killed about 9 percent of the country’s total population. A long time has passed since then. At the beginning of last March, the Sustainable Solutions Network of the United Nations announced the name of Finland as the happiest country in the world. The three neighboring countries of the Nordic region are Norway, Denmark, and Iceland, respectively following Finland.

Finnish citizens can also boast of ranking first in various other indicators. In recent years, their country has been named the most stable, freest, and safest country by various organizations.

These are easily understandable. Finland is a country where temperatures regularly hover around 20°C, and parts of the country rarely see sunlight for a large part of the year. What is so much to make the natives happy in that country?

What kind of happiness do Finnish people feel about their lives; The World Happiness Report was prepared based on the survey data of Gallup, a Washington-based public opinion polling agency.

Researchers have tried to explain the difference using a variety of variables, including GDP per capita, social assistance, healthy life expectancy, freedom of lifestyle, generosity, and freedom from corruption.

The difference between Finland and the top countries is very small and the position of the top five countries has not changed for several years. This year’s report also includes the happiness of immigrants for the first time, and Finland tops this category as well.

In this it is clear, that supportive social systems and institutions create happy societies; Where people are not in danger. They are interested in receiving more migrants and supporting them.

But the most impoverished and violence-ridden countries are at the very bottom. It is not surprising. There is nothing left to celebrate in war-torn Yemen and Syria.

The secret to Finland’s happiness may not seem appealing to many. A Finnish citizen summed it up: ‘You have your red hut and a plot of round potatoes; This is happiness.

Free education, normal paternity leave, and a healthy work environment have ensured that people have time to enjoy themselves. More than 80 percent of people have confidence in the country’s police, education, and healthcare systems.

This has been made possible by improved taxation and wealth redistribution, with no dramatic differences in the lifestyles of the rich and the poor. There is no difference even between men and women. Finland is one of the safest places in the world for a mother, a working woman.

However, the suicide rate in the country is very high. Still, by 2000, this rate was reduced to 30 percent. Immigrants are also happy in the country due to its strong support network and inclusive policies. In addition, immigrants living in Finland come from places like neighboring Estonia and Russia; Which is culturally almost of the same genre.

There are some surprises in Finland’s ranking. One is that the happiest countries are not necessarily the richest. America’s per capita income has doubled over the past 40 years, But it did not increase much for the welfare of the people.

In 2016, the United States ranked 13th in the list of happiest countries; This year it has come down to 18th position. Britain is in 19th place. Obesity, depression, and drug addiction are among the reasons behind the decline of rich countries, researchers have commented.

Also, people of different ages, cultures, and societies define happiness differently. Latin American citizens say they are happy despite the country’s wealth, corruption, or high levels of violence.

The reason they say is that happiness lies in strong family ties. In this regard, their various social elements and national culture play an important role. There is a word in Finland, ‘sisu’. This means, that no matter what comes your way, keep your determination and determination.
