Spring time is here and we are getting lots of good news from Finland. Many Finnish companies are doing great internationally at the moment. Finnair was selected as best European Airline company, and Helsinki-Vantaa Airport was selected as a best airport in Northern Europe. Also, Finnish Arctic Blue Gin has won Double Gold and was chosen as the Spirit of The Year 2018 at the World Spirits Awards.
The biggest news however, is that Finland has topped the 2018 Global Happiness report. The World Happiness Report ranks 156 countries by happiness levels, assessing factors such as life expectancy, social support and corruption. Many people, even the Finns, were quite surprised of the result. How come the quiet and melancholic people of Finland, are the happiest in the world? In this case, the happiness isn't measured by smile, it is measured by safety, equality and stability. Helsinki was also named as a best city for equality in Europe. Thinking about it, Finland offers a very secure platform to its people. It is easier reach out to the future and aim high when you have a steady foundation where to start.
We have a lot of things to be proud of and thankful! Easter is the time for good news and new beginnings. I hope we all could focus on those and take a positive outlook on future!
