We enthusiastically celebrate and wish one another all other days which don’t even mark the importance in our calendars, let alone in our lives. We don’t need a day to celebrate happiness yet we are blessed to have this day celebrated internationally on 20th March.
I believe the lime light on the history is less important than the celebration and essence of this day. We tend to find happiness in achieving big things and attaining big goals. But what if the happiness we seek is right here, right now, in our own hands, hearts, and in the habits we bring into daily life? This kind of happiness is sustainable and starts from the awareness that we are enough, and that we have all the resources we need for happiness already inside of us. When we are happy, we have so much more to give to others. We are more productive, more effective, more positive and more united.
A smile lent, a laugh shared, a giggle tossed would only make this world a better place. We should look for ways to celebrate happiness; build bridges than walls; and find the happiness in the tinniest of deeds than for making efforts for unachievable which would give you a chance to be unhappy.
-Happy people engage in more social activities.
-We forgive those who have wronged us, we feel better about ourselves, experience more positive emotions, and feel closer to others.
-People who count their blessing keep happier.
-Happiness is more realized when money is spent on others then on one’s self.
-Regular physical activity increases happiness.
-People who are mindful are more likely to be happy.
This is just not it; the greatest happiness lies in giving gifts. And what could provide you a better opportunity than Tohfay.com to send gifts to your friends and family across Pakistan.
Happy International Day of Happiness!
Smile, not because you need it but because the person next to you does.
