The happiness boost
Need cheering up? “Yes!” shouts an entire nation. Well, we prescribe a quick trip to new The Happiness Museum (Thehappinessmuseum.com) in Copenhagen. Created by The Happiness Research Institute, a think-tank dedicated to wellbeing and quality of life, visitors learn why the Danes so frequently top the UN’s annual World Happiness Report. Discover the secret of hygge, how happiness changes with age, why laughter is contagious and the future of happiness. If you go, stay at the recently refurbished Andersen Hotel (from £135 per night; Andersen-hotel.dk), which has a free Wine Hour daily from 5-6pm and bikes for exploring the city – both of which are pretty much guaranteed to make you feel happier.
