Even if you are one of those lucky folks that are born happy it’s not something you can choose to ignore. Happiness needs to be nurtured, fed and grown. There are many times in your life when your happiness will be tested. When life hands you lemons you know you can still make lemonade. The first step in being “Happy” is to learn which behaviors make you “Happy”. A proven fact - Happiness is contagious and gets better with age.
The General Assembly of the United Nations in its resolution 66/281 document of 12 July 2012 proclaimed 20 March the International Day of Happiness recognizing the relevance of happiness and well-being as universal goals and aspirations in the lives of human beings around the world and the importance of their recognition in public policy objectives.
What is the International Day of Happiness? It’s a day to be happy, of course! Since 2013, the United Nations has celebrated the International Day of Happiness as a way to recognise the importance of happiness in the lives of people around the world. The UN just launched 17 Sustainable Development Goals that seek to end poverty, reduce inequality, and protect our planet – three key aspects that lead to well-being and happiness.
The United Nations invites each person of any age, plus every classroom, business and government to celebrate the International Day of Happiness each year on March 20.
