In this economic game from Denmark, you have to become the happiest player by finding the right work-life balance.
As we go through life, we often measure our success and happiness by the amount of wealth we have accumulated. However, studies show that having a lot of money does not necessarily bring more happiness. Instead, work life balance plays a more critical role in enhancing one’s happiness.
It is all too easy to get caught up in the rat race and put in long hours at work to earn more money. But in doing so, we tend to overlook the importance of having time for ourselves and engaging in activities that bring us joy. At times, the pursuit of wealth can even lead to anxiety, depression, and stress, further diminishing our happiness.
That is where our board game Happy Nation comes in.
Our game is designed to help people find balance and happiness in their lives. It puts emphasis on the importance of self-care, taking care of loved ones and engaging in fun activities that make you happy.
Happy Nation teaches players the skills of time management and developing positive habits to promote a balanced lifestyle. Strategies include travelling, spending quality time with friends and family, finding enjoyable hobbies, and identifying ways to improve work-life balance.
