Congratulations to us!
Irvine has recently been named the 2019 Happiest City in California and the second Happiest City in the USA by the personal finance website WalletHub!
According to their report, WalletHub “drew upon the various findings of positive-psychology research in order to determine which among more than 180 of the largest U.S. cities is home to the happiest people in America. We examined each city based on 31 key indicators of happiness, ranging from depression rate to income-growth rate to average leisure time spent per day.”
The factors examined included depression rates, sleep rates, income growth, sports participation, and separation and divorce rates.
Married couples in Irvine will be happy to know that Irvine has the second lowest separation and divorce rate in the nation!

Does Irvine have problems?
Of course, we do!
But just for today, let’s remind ourselves that, for the most part, we really love living here!
Welcome Tilly’s Life Center to Irvine!
Tilly’s Life Center is a youth-focused, 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable foundation aimed at empowering all teens with a “youth-focused nonprofit empowerment program for teens helping to change attitudes and mindsets in order to overcome adversity and ultimately find happiness and success.”
Teens are facing problems that are universal, affecting them at every socioeconomic level and in every community. Even in supportive environments, teenagers face confusion and uncertainty in life.
As young people come under increased pressure to excel in a highly competitive world, Tilly’s Life Center is providing teens the support they need to thrive.
Through the Center’s “I Am Me” program, teens are taught life skills that motivate them to pursue their dreams and to focus on improving their lives, be it through more positive thinking, stress management, motivation, and purpose.
I am delighted to welcome Tilly’s Life Center to our City. Through increased engagement with our teens, we can aim to relieve their stress and promote healthy, happy, and productive lifestyles!
