20 Mar International Day of Happiness. | Be Mindful. Be Grateful. Be Kind.
March 20th is the United Nations International Day of Happiness. We can create a happier and kinder world together by adopting simple, daily practices.
This year’s theme is:
‘Be Mindful. Be Grateful. Be Kind.’
Here are three simple steps you can use anytime and anywhere to give yourself a boost and build your compassion for others.
By tuning in to your feelings, looking for what’s good and sharing kindness, you can nurture yourself and help make things better day by day.
Please give it a try and, if you find it helpful, share it with others too.
STEP 1: BE MINDFUL
Relax your breathing and notice:
How am I feeling right now?
STEP 2: BE GRATEFUL
Look around you and ask yourself:
What am I thankful for?
STEP 3: BE KIND
With warm feelings, ask yourself:
Who do I want to send love to?
There are lots of big and worrying issues in our world right now. We can’t always change what is happening, but we can choose how we respond.
And we can do more to create a happier and kinder world when we connect with others and unite together.
