Have you ever noticed how little research there is on happiness in comparison to depression research? The difference is huge! Happiness is an important determinant and outcome of economic, health and social well-being.
Today is the Internationaldayofhappiness.
It might sound like a superfluous celebration, but it was established by the United Nations Assembly in 2012 to recognize the relevance of happiness and well-being as universal goals and aspirations in the lives of human beings around the world.
For those interested in this topic, take a look at the World Happiness Report 2020. It was launched today. Findings reinforce the point that people like living in communities and societies with less inequality of well-being, and where trust – of other people, and of public institutions is high.
Trust makes people, communities and organizations more resilient.
For those interested in remaining positive and taking some action in the middle of this health and social crisis, you can download a coping calendar. It has some activities worth doing no matter the time of the year.
Let’s try to be happy, starting with a big laugher today. 😁
