A new study says that people often turn to God under stressed societies and seems to be happier.Peace and the spiritual spirit makes them happier independently, reducing the stress levels.
The study was done to analyze people happiness and their religion belief globally.Professor Ed Diener from the University of Illinois, who led the research said” Difficult situations lead more strongly to people being religious.These people are found more happy than non-religious people.”
He further said “But in non-religious society or more rich societies, where their need’s are met religious people are not happier.”
The study consists of survey of more than 150 countries and includes the questions about religious beliefs, respect, life satisfaction and positive and negative feelings.
People in religious society feel more respected, receive more social support and experience more positive and comparatively less negative feelings. 68% of people are found religious globally.
