Every Day Should Be A Day of Happiness, but March 20 Is an International Day of Happiness

I recently heard there’s an actual International Day of Happiness, so I googled it to find out why is it celebrated?

“By designating a special day for happiness, the United Nations (UN) aims to focus world attention on the idea that economic growth must be inclusive, equitable, and balanced, such that it promotes sustainable development, and alleviates poverty. … The first International Day of Happiness was celebrated on March 20, 2013.”

Hence the reason I thought this would be interesting to write about!
There are so many things that could make anyone happy!

We offer some great choices for starting your child on the path of happiness ! ?

Do you know if you have a smart phone there are all sorts of apps you can download to get daily positive inspiration?
Connect with others in your community and make life happier where you are. Join a “meet up” group. They’re in every town. There’s no reason to be lonely my friend!
We smile because we’re happy, and smiling causes the brain to release dopamine, which makes us happier.

But what if we are poor, lonely, alone, miserable, etc. My first reaction of course would be to help someone in need. Talk to them, visit, send a card, just making someone feel better about themselves makes me happy.

Read a book you’ve been wanting to for a long time.

Upgrade your cup ‘ o ‘ joe….?

Do a little reading on well-being, mindfulness, and other ways to get in touch with what’s most important, you may start to grab a new outlook on life.

Consider some of these to start you day with a smile on your face.

Remind yourself of any fun activities you once enjoyed, but that have fallen by the wayside.

Try some activities you always wanted to try, such as golf, bowling, or dancing.

Take a walk around the block every night after dinner.

Always get plenty of sleep. That always helps you start your day on the right foot!

Make sure you eat as healthy as possible.

I try to be grateful for something every day.  Get some sun.  Give someone a compliment.  Prioritize your goals.

March 20, 2014. In honor of the holiday, Pharrell releases the 24-hour music video for his song “Happy.” ?
Here are the words, I dare you to listen to it and try NOT to smile!

‘It might seem crazy what I’m ’bout to say
Sunshine she’s here, you can take a break
I’m a hot air balloon that could go to space
With the air, like I don’t care baby by the way
Huh, because I’m happy ?
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy ?
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I’m happy ?
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I’m happy ?
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do
Here come bad news, talking this and that
(Yeah) Well, give me all you got, and don’t hold it back
(Yeah) Well, I should probably warn you I’ll be just fine
(Yeah) No offense to you, don’t waste your time
Here’s why
Because I’m happy ?
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy ?
Clap along”
Watch the YouTube version…and smile, smile, smile…and BE HAPPY! ?
Listen to it…smile…dance…clap…
In conclusion, I urge you to “Connect with others in your community”, make life happier where you are.  If you aren’t a social person , step out of your comfort zone! I’m very social, my husband is not. So we get together often with friends just to laugh. Laughing is good for the soul!  What do you do to create your own happiness? What do you do to help others? I’d love to know! 

    “ I will try to create more happiness in the world around me”

BUT WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM OUR FRIENDS WE CAN TRY
