Hawaii was named the happiest state in the country for 2010.

This according to the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, which takes into account emotional health, physical health, healthy behaviors, and job satisfaction.

It's not hard to think why people in Hawaii might be the happiest. While their politics might not sit well with me, it's still Hawaii. Beautiful beaches, great weather, golf, surfing, and of course, good looking women. Yeah, I could be pretty happy I think. Some of the other states in the top 5 though, I'm not so sure about. The rest of the top five happiest states were Wyoming, North Dakota, Alaska and Colorado. Not tropical, but Alaska and Colorado aren't terrible.

On the other end of the spectrum, West Virginia was deemed the most miserable state, followed by Kentucky and Mississippi.

Texas came in 28th. So, while we are probably the proudest state in the U.S., we are not the happiest.

Why do you think Texas came in at 28? What could make people in Texas, "happier"?
