Ear: Finns

Many know that Finland is considered the happiest country on earth, but few have given a good explanation of why they're so happy.

Thanks to Astorian Walter Waite, who pointed out an article on CNBC.com by Frank Martela.  Martela is a philosopher, author, psychology researcher and lecturer at Aalto University in Finland, who explains it's about what Finns don't do that keeps them happy.
