I’ve lived here in Colorado my whole life, and except for the 4 years I spent at college at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, I have never lived anywhere else. And there is a very good reason for that, I don’t think there is anywhere else better.
Here’s a good example of why I feel that way, yesterday the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index was released, and Colorado was ranked #2 only behind Hawaii which has lead for the past 5 years. This study lists the states with the highest sense of overall well being, which is based on physical health, outlook on life, job satisfaction as well as other things that affect quality of life.
People living in the states that ranked high on this list, like Colorado, tend to have lower obesity rates, fewer medical issues like diabetes, heart disease and chronic pain. They were also found to enjoy their jobs more, smoke less and exercise more than residents of other states.
Healthways, a well-being improvement company which sponsors the research, works with people, families, businesses and communities to improve well-being to lower health care costs and improve productivity.
I think it’s pretty impressive to come in a close second to a state like Hawaii that has near perfect weather all year round, gorgeous beaches and is as close to paradise that can be found. As all of us native Coloradans know, there is nowhere else as good to call home as Colorado.

"We worked with Karen Venier for a relatively short time for a good reason: our home sold at full price within hours of hitting the market! While it’s true that the Denver housing market is “hot,” credit for the speed and ease of our transaction belongs to Karen. She was great to work with, giving us perfect advice about readying our home for sale and then expertly guiding us from offer to close. Along the way, we came to appreciate Karen for her skillful blend of professionalism and personal touches – like dropping off our favorite beverages during a particularly stressful time in our move or shoveling our driveway in subzero temps after we’d left the state (way beyond the call of duty!). Now that we’ve relocated to Wisconsin, we keep saying that we wish Karen could be our buyer’s agent here. Since that’s not possible, we’ll shout her name loudly to whoever might be looking for a home in the Denver area.
Thanks for the great work, Karen!
