Spread a little happiness!


How can anyone deny the appeal of a day of complete, uninterrupted, blissful happiness? This sounds wonderful even for just one day.

The United Nations International Day of Happiness is a global movement for a happier world, in which we can all participate on Monday 20th March 2017.


Founded in 2012, since then, 20th March has been designated as the annual day of happiness.


International Day of Happiness was founded by Jayme Illien, Chairman and CEO of Illien Global Public Benefit Corporation. Illien was a former United Nations Adviser. International Day of Happiness was introduced when UN resolution 66/281 was adopted by consensus of all 193 member states of the United Nations.

In order to achieve long-term contentment, the non-profit movement, Action for Happiness has created ten keys to happier living:


Giving – do things for others

Relating – connect with people

Exercising – take care of your body

Awareness – live life mindfully

Trying Out – keep learning new things


Direction – have goals to look forward to

Resilience – find ways to bounce back

Emotions – look for what is good

Accepting – be comfortable with who you are

Meaning – be part of something bigger.


The UN recently launched 17 Sustainable Development Goals that aim to reduce inequality, end poverty and protect our planet, which are key aspects that lead to wellbeing and happiness.


The United Nations encourages everyone around the world to take the time to participate in the International Day of Happiness.


Smile, it’s free and extremely rewarding.
