Are you happy? What does it take to be happy? And where are the happiest places on Earth.

Buettner has made happiness the focus of his work, through the Blue Zones web site. He identifies six components of every human life that can affect our level of happiness.
Yes, read the book, but if you’re too eager to get to the happiness place, check out brief discussion of his six “thrive centers” — community, workplace, social life, financial life, home and self.
And when we at the Hood River Hotel look out our door every day, we realize we live in a really happy place. Join us, if only for a few days.
