Who better to celebrate International Day of Happiness with than technology speaker and Hacking H(app)iness author John C. Havens! John has been on the forefront as a featured guest on respected programs for his expertise on data, technology, and the trending topic of “happiness.” In honor of this day, John wrote an article explaining how he celebrates International Day of Happiness!
Friday is the International Day of Happiness, and there are a lot of great initiatives happening around the world I wanted to let you know about:
Action for Happiness is running a big global campaign where The H(app)athon Project is a Partner. Focused on the idea that Your Happiness is Part of Something Bigger, the site features multiple ways to make positive connections with others, including a Free Happiness Pack full of practical ideas. One of my favorites is to create your own Happiness Club that functions like a book club where you meet 12 times throughout the year to encourage increased positivity and wellbeing.
Live Happy magazine is featuring a 24-hour Happiness Livestream that’s free to sign up for and view, beginning tomorrow night at 8PM Eastern. I did an interview with Kym Yancey, co-founder of Live Happy that will be featured twice on March 20th, first at 5:00 AM and then 2:15 Eastern.
The Campaign to Change Direction is focused on creating awareness about, and improvement of, the state of mental health in America. The group is actually focused on a social media awareness push on March 23rd (versus March 20th), and I’m honored that the Happathon Project is a Founding Partner for the campaign. An excellent and proactive tool featured in the campaign is their Five Signs that may mean someone is in emotional pain and might need help. I strongly encourage you to check these signs and tweet/broadcast them as much as possible as a pragmatic way to turn the tide of stigma towards mental illness and get help for those in need. What a great way to honor the International Day of Happiness in a forward thinking and beneficial way.
Lastly, make sure to use the #InternationalDayOfHappiness hashtag to promote the focus on happiness and wellbeing for any/all efforts you want to promote.
As always, thank you for your interest and support.
