The Single factor one-way ANOVA is basically used to test whether the population means of observations of more than one treatment effects are equal (Brady, 2015). Since F > F crit the null hypothesis has to be rejected in this case. In this case, 396.1246 > 3.938111 thus we reject the null hypothesis in the sense that means for Happiness and Relationship are not equal. Post Hoc testing is useful in identifying the differences that are significant (Kuznetsova, Brockhoff, & Christensen, 2017). As opposed to the t-test, the ANOVA is useful in comparing means of more than two groups to test the hypothesis (Maurya, 2015). Moreover, since ANOVA goes to the extent of showing the statistical significance between the groups, it also reduces type I error (Keith, 2014).
