Americans Are Unhappy

A recent survey found that Americans are the unhappiest they’ve been in 50 years. The survey, conducted by the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) at the University of Chicago, found that just 14 percent of American adults say they’re very happy. This is down 13 points from 2018. Maybe we shouldn’t be surprised. The coronavirus has kept us socially isolated as we’re shut in our homes, unable to attend family events like weddings to backyard barbecues, worship with fellow believers, and in many cases go to work. And this is taking a toll. We can blame the coronavirus for our unhappiness but our culture is awash in materialism and amusements. Now would be a good time to reflect not just on what’s making us unhappy, but what is it that really makes for lasting happiness?
