Among the questions the individuals were asked on how often they practice physical activity; had good a night of quiet and deep sleep; about the use of time, considering that this is one of the most significant factors in the quality of life, especially the time for leisure and socializing with family and friends. Balanced time management was assessed, including time in traffic, at work, in educational activities, leisure, etc. Among the results, being optimistic, the practice of physical exercises, participation in a social group, are factors that positively affect the happiness of individuals.
