Hello everyone, Guess what? Today is the International world happiness day. Don’t worry if you don’t know why we celebrate because I am going to explain why we celebrate this day. Even i got to know today only. And how it is different from the ordinary day. This is just the fourth anniversary for this celebration.
The International Day of Happiness is celebrated worldwide every March 20, and was conceptualized and founded by philanthropist, activist, statesman, and prominent United Nations special advisor Jayme Illien to inspire, mobilize, and advance the global happiness movement.
Every March 20 since 2013, the International Day of Happiness is celebrated in 193 UN Member states, 2 observer states, and 11 territories.
According to the new Happiness index report 2017, Norway is leading while india has dropped to 123rd position in happiness index. There are many factors which includes in the ranking such as freedom of choice, Corruption in country, healthy life expectancy, Generosity and many more.
Are we really care for this day? Nah. We all are busy in our hustle bustle of the day like every day. Some are busy earning, Some are busy making their mark in what so ever work they do, Some had actually made it large already but still making it enormous. And some are enjoying life to the fullest without any planning and going with the flow.
Happiness may have different meanings for different people, but we can all agree that it means working to end conflict, poverty, and other unfortunate conditions in which so many of our fellow human beings live, This year, the U.N. and Illien are encouraging people to post what makes them happy on social media with the tag #InternationalDayofHappiness — so if you’ve been waiting for the right time to share that kitten GIF or inspirational quote, today is the day.
Of course, each individual’s definition of happiness is different: For some people, it may mean starting a family or settling down with a book for a few hours, but for others, aka myself, happiness is a solo Justin Bieber dance party. These differences are part of the International Day of Happiness; without all the weird quirks that make us different, the world would be pretty boring. Most importantly, although our reasons may vary, each of us deserves the right to pursue what makes us happy, and that’s what the International Day of Happiness is really about.
“Happiness is a fundamental human right and goal, and every person on this planet should experience it not only on this special day, but throughout year,” Illien said. “Everyone smiles in the same language.”
So go ahead and do what makes you happy today!!
Have a happy happy day…
