March 20 is International Day of Happiness
Your happiness is part of something bigger!
After years of happiness research, one thing has proved fundamental – the importance of our connections with other people.
But modern societies are built as if the opposite was true. We are surrounded by people, yet we feel genuinely connected to almost none of them. The effects are devastating. Social isolation is as potent a cause of early death as smoking; and the epidemic of loneliness is twice as deadly as obesity. We could change this in a day if we all reached out and made at least one positive connection.
For the International Day of Happiness, that’s exactly what we’re going to do.
We need your help to make the world a happier and more connected place
For the International Day of Happiness we are asking everyone to reach out and make new connections. Here’s how you can get involved:
1. Join HAPPINESS ACTIONS in cities across the GLOBE – OR START ONE OF YOUR OWN
Happiness Activists are getting together to take action in Cities across the globe, from Washington DC to London and Milan.
They’ll be gathering in public spaces and local communities to connect with people of all walks of life to spread the word that the days of disconnection are numbered.
2. Help make the world a more connected place by sharing something positive with others
Although online relationships will never be as valuable as those we create in person – the internet is still a great tool for spreading good ideas! You can help make the world a happier and more connected place by sharing an inspiring personal message with others using the hashtag:
WANT TO CREATE MORE HAPPINESS IN THE WORLD AROUND YOU?
That’s fantastic that you want to help make the world a happier place! Download the FREE Happiness Pack just for people like you here: www.dayofhappiness.net/involved
