International Day of Happiness: 5 Ways to Bring Smiles to Yourself and Others
Cherish Being Happy Amid Extraordinary Challenges We’re Facing
While the world experiences extraordinary challenges one after another, such as the pandemic followed by the escalating bloody conflict in Europe triggered by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, it is getting even more difficult for people to find reasons to be happy.
That’s why the International Day of Happiness on March 20th is a timely event that should remind all of us that being happy is a state of mind we must always cherish regardless of what’s happening all around us.
Declared by the United Nations in June 2012, the International Day of Happiness seeks to recognize that as a mark of progress, nations must pursue the happiness and well-being of their people in addition to economic growth.
Why Should You Be Happy?
Being happy offers many benefits. Here are some reasons why you should turn that frown upside down.
1. Happiness keeps you healthier.
Happiness per se cannot be categorized as medicine. However, research confirms that happiness improves the health and well-being of a person and promotes longer life. The study shows that happier people are at lesser risks of developing heart problems and high blood pressure. Happiness is also a perfect antidote to stress and helps boost the immune system.
2. Happiness boosts productivity.
There is a saying that if you do something you love, you will never have to work another day in your life. The same principle applies to employee satisfaction and job performance. A 2019 Oxford study showed that happier workers generally performed better at work and received better evaluations compared to other workers.
3. Happiness is contagious.
Your moods and feelings affect those around you. When you are happy, you inspire others to stay positive.
How You Can Best Celebrate the International Day of Happiness
In celebration of International Day of Happiness, Breast Cancer Car Donations is happy to share the best ways of spreading cheer to others and imbibing the feeling as well.
1. Share happiness with others.
With a simple positive post on social media, you can make another person’s day. Post a cute cat meme or an inspiring video. Compliment a co-worker for a job well done. Say “thank you” to your server at the restaurant. Give your bestie a quick call. Give bear hugs to your family members.
2. Work on your own happiness.
According to the Dalai Lama, happiness is not a fleeting feeling but a work in progress. When you focus on your problems, you only make your negative feelings grow worse, making things seem unbearable. However, by maintaining a positive outlook, you can open the doors to hope and happiness.
3. Sign up for happiness coaching.
For this year’s celebration of International Happiness Day, you can sign up to receive 10 days of happiness coaching via email or SMS. You can also listen to free webinars facilitated by happiness experts.
4. Do something that makes you happy.
Start with yourself. Do something simple for yourself that will make you happy. Take a break to enjoy a perfect cup of coffee. Read a book. Go on a spa day. Treat yourself to a handsome steak (or salad). Understand the importance of your own happiness.
