Isle of Wight residents score high on happiness test

Isle of Wight residents have been shown by a new poll to be less anxious and happier than those living in many other parts of the UK.

According to data collected by the Office for National Statistics, islanders were happier on average per person than others in the south-east of the country.

The average score given by islanders on a happiness scale of one to ten was 7.47, compared with 7.35 in the south-east and 7.28 per cent for the nation as a whole, reports the Isle of Wight County Press.

Isle of Wight holidays could therefore be an option for those who want to reduce their levels of anxiety and improve their happiness as a result.

The Isle of Wight has been in the news this week as it was chosen as the destination to bring the Queen's Diamond Jubilee tour to an end on Wednesday (July 25th) ahead of the start of the Olympic Games in London.
