International Day of Happiness
The International Day of Happiness is celebrated annually on March 20th to recognize the importance of happiness in the lives of people around the world. It was established by the United Nations in 2012 to promote the idea that happiness is a fundamental human right and a key goal of public policy.
In college, you can celebrate the International Day of Happiness by organizing events and activities that promote happiness and well-being among students and faculty. Here are some ideas:
Organize a happiness-themed movie night: Choose a movie that promotes happiness and well-being, such as “The Pursuit of Happyness” or “Inside Out”, and screen it for the college community.
Host a happiness-themed workshop: Invite a happiness expert to conduct a workshop on how to cultivate happiness and well-being. You can also organize workshops on topics such as mindfulness, meditation, and gratitude.
Plan a happiness-themed game day: Set up game stations around the campus and invite students and faculty to play games that promote happiness and well-being, such as yoga, tai chi, or board games.
Spread happiness through random acts of kindness: Encourage students and faculty to engage in random acts of kindness throughout the day, such as leaving positive notes around campus or doing something nice for a stranger.
Hold a happiness-themed photo contest: Encourage students and faculty to submit photos that capture moments of happiness and joy. You can also display the photos around the campus to promote happiness and positivity.
Remember, the International Day of Happiness is a day to celebrate the importance of happiness in our lives and to spread joy and positivity to those around us.
