Eight of the 25 Happiest Cities in the US are located right here in California. Ventura residents came in at the #20 spot. The team at National Geographic highlighted our beautiful weather and beaches as well as the closeness of Los Padres and Angeles National Forests as reasons why Ventura residents were so happy.

How Were Rankings Determine?

The National Geographic team took several factors into consideration 15 separate factors. Some of these included healthy eating habits, lifestyle, activity level, financial security, the amount of vacation time taken, amount of civic engagement and dental checkups. Yes, dental checkups. For some reason, areas where people visit their dentists more often tend to be happier. Maybe it’s because happy people like to smile. You need good teeth to feel good about smiling. Easy access to water also makes people happy. So, it makes sense that a coastal community like ours made the list.

How Can I Increase my Happiness?

  • Be active – Get some exercise. That could mean walking, bicycling, skating, skateboarding. Whatever it is, just get out there and move!
  • Eat healthier – We have several local farmers markets that provide great, locally sourced food. Visit them weekly to use in your family’s dinner.
  • Get a hobby – Find something you enjoy doing and do it regularly.
  • Go to the beach – Happy people love the water. Surfing, swimming, volleyball or beachside barbecues. They all make people happy.
  • Give back to your community – Volunteer at a senior center, local hospital or animal shelter.
  • Sleep – Never underestimate the power of a good night’s sleep.
  • Set a goal – They don’t have to be big goals. Maybe you want to run a marathon. Start with running a mile a day. Then, increase it to two. Then, three. And so on and so on. Track your progress. You’ll be marathon-ready before you know it.
  • Take a vacation – Even a quick weekend getaway out of your normal routine can add happiness to your life.
