Pinoy youth belonging to "Generation Y" are the happiest and least stressed in the world, survey says
Our happiness is credited mainly to strong family ties-the kind that don’t choke us to death.
Bong Lozada of Inquirer.net reports that Filipino millennials-or those born between the early 1980s and the early 2000s-"are the happiest and least stressed in the world," based on a study commissioned by foreign media firm Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN).
According to the report, the study found out that "despite fears of unemployment, Filipinos have always looked at the brighter side even as 49 percent of millennials surveyed believed that job security would continue to get worse." Results of the survey also showed that young Filipinos belonging to the so-called Generation Y "thrive on interpersonal contact with the family as a driving force towards their happy and stress-free lives."
The Filipino millennials' happiness level is ranked at 83 percent, with young Indian adults following closely with a happiness level of 81 percent, the report noted. The study is said to be the "broadest single study of the Millennial generation to date."
