Despite trying times, most people around the world are experiencing great levels of positive emotions, but Syrians' happiness is at an all-time low for any country, according to a newly published Gallup poll.Even though the conflict and other unrest dominate much of the news, at least seven in 10 adults worldwide report experiencing enjoyment, laughing or smiling a lot, feeling well-rested and being treated with respect, while a slight majority (51 percent) report that they had learned or done something interesting the day before.For the second year in a row, the country with the lowest positive emotions is Syria, with a score of 36 on the index. Fewer than one in three Syrians report feeling well-rested (31 percent), feeling enjoyment (31 percent) or having learned or done something interesting (25 percent) the day before.Gallup measured each of these positive emotions in 138 countries in 2013 by asking people whether they had experienced such feelings the previous day. Gallup compiles the "yes" results into a Positive Experience Index score for each country.
