Report Says THESE Two States Have Residents With the Highest Sense of Well-Being

The state with the highest ranking of residents with a sense of well-being may not be surprise: Hawaii. But second on the list? Alaska.

According to the Associated Press, a Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index reveals that residents of the gorgeous state of Alaska rate it very high despite its reputation for long, frigid winters with short periods of direct sunlight and a statistically high crime, depression, and domestic abuse rate.

Third, fourth, and fifth on the list were Montana, Colorado, and Wyoming. It's interesting to note that the top five states all have big mountains, wilderness, and a strong outdoors culture in common.

And the lowest five on the list for a sense of well-being? Indiana, Ohio, Oklahoma, Kentucky, and West Virginia.

Does your sense of well-being match your state in this report? How much does where you live matter?
