These Are the Best Cities to Live a 'Healthy and Happy Life' This Year, According to Study


Looking to live a happy and healthy life? (We mean, who isn't?!) Make your way to Vienna, stat. At least that's according to online optical retailer Lenstore in its Healthy Lifestyle Cities Report for 2022. If you're not particularly into Vienna, well, don't you worry cause there are a bunch of other countries at your disposal.

"We collected data across 10 metrics for 48 cities around the world (please see all metrics below). Each of these metrics were awarded a weighted score and these were combined to give each city a total score out of 10. This score was then used to rank the 48 cities to determine which were best for healthy living," researchers said.

The metrics include obesity levels, life expectancy, sunshine hours, air and water quality, happiness levels, cost of a bottle of water, average yearly working hours, outdoor activities, number of takeout places, and cost of a monthly gym membership—you know, just the essentials.
