Being ‘Happiful’ on International Day of Happiness!
Being ‘happiful’ on the International Day of Happiness (20 March 2020) may be somewhat challenging in the current climate… but we have lots of very timely help at hand! The Action for Happiness theme for the International Day of Happiness 2020 is
Keep Calm. Stay Wise. Be Kind.
They’re calling on us to find positive ways to look after ourselves and each other. This call to action couldn’t be more timely as we face a global crisis of not just climate change, but now the Covid-19 virus.
Once again, research shows Northern Europe topping the Ranking of Happiness Chart: Finland, Denmark, Norway, Iceland and Netherlands complete the top 6. It’s sad to see the UK way down in 15th place and the US at 19th place. Governments, the report says, should take happiness more seriously if they want to stay in power and social media is making young people unhappy.
The World Happiness Report offers the world’s governments and individuals the opportunity to rethink public policies as well as individual life choices, to raise happiness and wellbeing. We are in an era of rising tensions and negative emotions and these findings point to underlying challenges that need to be addressed.
— Prof. Jeffrey Sachs
