A new University of Connecticut/Hartford Courant poll shows that while 44 percent of people in the state said they frequently feel stress, 58 percent said they are completely or very happy.

“People in Connecticut are saying they’re very satisfied with a variety of aspects of their lives, their jobs and their family relationships,” said UConn Poll Director Jennifer Necci Dineen. “But even a life full of good things can cause us to have to do some juggling, and that can cause some stress.”

Poll results also showed that older residents tend to be happier than their younger counterparts.

“Things that used to worry me don’t bother me as much now,” said Rose Bisson, a 58-year-old former school principal from Hampton who took the poll.
