If you want to improve your sense of well-being, leave the Lower 48.
A new report ranking all 50 states based on residents' sense of well-being puts Hawaii at No. 1, followed by Alaska, which held the top spot last year.
Hawaii has been No. 1 in the poll five times since 2008.
"Alaska and Hawaii are both beautiful states in their own way but distinctly different," said Dan Witters, research director of the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index.
I know that our reputation has been somewhat sullied by the one who shall not be named, but really there is nothing anybody can do to damage the beauty and serenity of our beautiful state.
I lived in Hawaii for a year while I went to school, but in my mind there is only one place to live.
