Maybe ‘Angry’ Montanans Need to Learn How to Be Happy
Everybody is angry these days. The Oscars had to take special security measures after last year's angry "incident." Just this week it was reported in The Hill that two flight attendants had a flight and were refusing to work with each other.
We've seen it locally, too. People with out-of-state plates are being harassed...even the people who are local and are just driving rental cars. In return, new residents are angry at locals because they don't feel welcome. This all adds up to some concerning new data.
Montana is Ranked 4th in the Country for Anger
We covered this last month. When Wallet Hub came out with its "Most Sinful States" list, we also noticed some other interesting findings, namely, the states that are the angriest. And Montana was only beaten out by three other states.
Things like road rage and hostile internet comments contributed to the findings, but as we said before, we just don't think of Montanans as being angry. So maybe we all need a little help.
A New Master Class in Finland Will Teach Happiness
Travel + Leisure published a piece this week that featured a new program from Visit Finland. Why might Finland know about happiness? Well, they've only been named the happiest country in the world for the last four years, according to Travel + Leisure.
The Master class gives people the chance to "discover their inner happiness" while spending four days in Finland. The catch: there are only 10 spots available.
That might not be enough for all of the angry people in Montana, but maybe Montana can establish a sister city with Finland and that way, we can all learn the "Finnish state of mind" over a longer period of time.
If you are interested in applying you can find the application at this link. The deadline is April 2. Good luck and wishing you all the happiness in the world.
