    Default Amid War And Disease, World Happiness Report Shows Bright Spot

    McGill University
    March 19 2022

    In this troubled time of war and pandemic, the World Happiness Report 2022 shows a bright light in dark times. According to the team of international researchers, including McGill University Professor Christopher Barrington-Leigh, the pandemic brought not only pain and suffering but also an increase in social support and benevolence.

    As the world battles the ills of disease and war, it is especially important to remember the universal desire for happiness and the capacity of individuals to rally to each other's support in times of great need, say the authors of the report. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the World Happiness Report, which uses global survey data to report on how people evaluate their own lives in more than 150 countries around the world reaching over 9 million people in 2021.

    I see evidence of that everywhere... Mostly in the supermarket since there aren't too many other places where I go these days. There is always someone handy, not just an employee but a complete stranger, to give you a hand with something when you need it — like reaching an item way back on the topmost shelf… Or helping you with a 32-pound bag of dog food, all the way out to your car. I see it on the road as well, where people at intersections gesture to others to go ahead… Things like that. Just a lot of little courtesies that we never used to see, that have now become common.
