JAMAICAN RANKS AS ONE OF THE HAPPIEST PEOPLE IN TERMS OF HEALTH, QUALITY OF LIFE AND ECO FOOTPRINTS

Why are Jamaicans such happy people? Well, for starters we have strong family bonds, emotional well-being from positive constructive leisure like going to beach, dancing to reggae music, humor, a spiritual base of faith, freedom of movement and good health. These are some of those qualities which I have observed to constitute the happiness which you will see transcends from our Jamaican people.
We do have issues here like corruption, however despite these problems, the Jamaican government is able  is able to maintain some of the best levels of health in the developing world, which is evidence by our high average life expectancy. Let's also not forget that we are also able to maintain a good level of ecological footprint, which puts Jamaica towards the top of the Happy Planet Index (HPI) table. The HPI measures happiness levels in relation to a country’s consumption of its natural resources. Its aim is to prove that you can be happy without destroying the planet.
The West and the developing countries tend to sacrifice things that are important in life such as families, friends, and time in the chase for money and career progression. The question is, If we become rich at the expense of the planet, what good is that? The HPI is a refreshing and practical measurement which balances our health, quality of life, and our effects on the earth. I refer  to this as  the "new economics". #jamaica   #montegobay     #ochorios  #holiday #tourexcursion #traveltojamaica#jamaicagetallright #airporttransfershttp://pp-jamaica-tours-transportation.blogspot.co.uk/Visit http://www.paradisepalmsjamaica.com/ for 4 Bedroom Villa sleep 9 persons in Montego bay Jamaica.
