Help finding happy

Need help to find your happy? March 20th is the international day of happiness…
Happiness is as important as health and wealth
The UN decided in 2011 that we had our priorities a bit skewed when it came to how we judged a successful society.
They highlighted the fact that money and even good physical health could not compensate for unhappiness.
So they decreed an International Day of Happiness – to promote the importance of finding and sustaining your happy every day.
That day is March 20th every year. Countries around the globe celebrate what makes us happy, and look to ways to improve the things that don’t.
