The World Happiness Report for 2020 has ranked New Zealand as one of the happiest countries in the world - but Mike Hosking doesn't think we're happy enough!

The report ranked eighth in the world for happiness, with an average rating of 7.3.

However, talking on Wrapping the Week with Kate Hawkesby and Tim Wilson, Mike made it clear that we should be aiming higher. 

"I think it's poor. Everyone should be 9.5 to 9.8.

"Where's the other three - what's missing in your life?" 

Meanwhile, Kate shared her story about fainting after having trouble getting a blood test - sparking a debate on whether doctors are overly keen to dish out blood test.
