On Taiwan, women feel happier than men
A survey by questionnaire of 4,790 adults 18 years old and older shows that 17.1% of those surveyed say they are “unhappy” or “very unhappy.” Nearly half of them feel depressed. But overall, women feel happier than men. Of the 82.9% who say they are happy, 30% of them exercise regularly. Of the 17.1% who say they are unhappy, 60% exercise once a week or less and some do not exercise at all.
According to a Taiwanese health counselor, getting enough sleep and eating a balanced diet are important factors that contribute to a feeling of personal happiness.
