Did you know? There is an International Day of Happiness!


The Worldwide Happiness Day is March 20th, 2017!

Happiness Day, officially known as the International Day of Happiness was founded in 2012 with all 193 member states of the United Nations Assembly unanimously adopting the resolution. The resolution acknowledges that the Pursuit of Happiness is an inescapable goal of we, humans.

So thank you, governments of the world for tipping your hat to that wonderful and unalienable right; the pursuit of Happiness.

A big focus for the International Day of Happiness is to take action to improve not only your happiness but the happiness of others. Sounds like a good enough reason to introduce a series of posts on improving your Happiness and the Happiness of those around you!

  1. Count me amongst those really excited for this. I look forward to reading along and learning more about happiness. Up until last week, I had no idea there was an International Day of Happiness. Pretty cool idea.

  2. Thanks for the comments everyone! I’ll do my best to pull this off. If you have any suggestions as we move forward don’t hesitate to share – there is wisdom in a multitude of counselors, so they say.

  3. Happiness is the end goal for everyone. I think starting with this as the goal and being clear about it can be helpful. Then you can start to talk about specifics that make you happy. For me it’s largely centered around having time to focus my life’s energy where I choose, taking a drivers seat in my one self actualization, connecting with loved ones, learning, etc. Inevitably, money always becomes part of the conversation when trying to get more time in your life.

    1. Very true, you can’t accomplish very much for very long without the resources (read: money) to do so.
