Will Misery Ever Rule the World?

People around the world are more miserable than they’ve ever been, according to a study by Gallup of 154,000 people in more than 145 countries released Wednesday. Indeed, Gallup’s so-called “Negative Experience Index” — which is an average of people’s self-reports of their daily levels of worry, stress, physical pain, sadness and anger — has hit the highest level since Gallup began measuring the data a decade ago.

While the data doesn’t show why misery is on the upswing, Julie Ray, the chief writer and editor for Gallup World Poll, says that it may be because “a lot of countries are in turmoil right now” and since we’re all so interconnected, that unhappiness and pain has spread across the world.
