Happiness Lessons in Finland
By Jinny Throup
Finland, which is considered in surveys to be the happiest country in the world, is offering free trips to teach people the simple Finnish art of being happy. The project called Rent A Finn was organised by the ‘Visit Finland’ tourism bureau. It gives a select number of guests the opportunity to live in Finnish households for three days and to experience life as the Finns do. The Finns attribute their relaxed and cheerful lives to their connection with nature so guests will experience such things as visiting a national park, berry picking, boating, camping out and enjoying a proper Finnish sauna. If you want to become one of the lucky few to have your very own Finnish “happiness guide” application forms can be found at rentafinn.com.
