Top Spots for Work­ing Women

No doubt we’re bi­ased to­wards think­ing that Sin­ga­pore is a great place for women to live and work. Sur­pris­ingly, a global sur­vey rated it at num­ber 30, far be­hind the top three coun­tries: Lux­em­bourg, Tai­wan and Ger­many. They’re rated highly for job se­cu­rity and ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties, as are Hun­gary and Bahrain, which came in at num­bers four and five re­spec­tively. Slightly un­der half of the ex­pa­tri­ate women sur­veyed men­tioned their job or their busi­ness as a rea­son for ex­pa­tri­at­ing, far lower than the 71 per­cent of men who did so. In­ter­est­ingly, over three-quar­ters of ex­pat women con­sider them­selves happy, and three in ten are think­ing about stay­ing abroad for the rest of their lives! in­ter­na­tions.org

Tune Into Na­ture

If you can’t get close to na­ture to im­prove your mood, it seems the next best thing is to watch it. Global re­search by the BBC into the sci­ence of emo­tion, hot on the heels of the re­lease of their block­buster se­ries Planet Earth 2, re­vealed that view­ers ex­pe­ri­enced pos­i­tive emo­tions such as cu­rios­ity, awe and con­tent­ment just by watch­ing nat­u­ral his­tory pro­grammes. This backs nu­mer­ous stud­ies demon­strat­ing the im­por­tance of na­ture to our well­be­ing. re­al­hap­pi­nesspro­ject.com
