Summary
Don't worry - be happy!

March 20th has been established as the annual International Day of Happiness and all 193 United Nations member states have adopted a resolution calling for happiness to be given greater priority.

This campaign is a global celebration to mark the United Nations International Day of Happiness. It is coordinated by Action for Happiness, a non-profit movement of people from 160 countries, supported by a partnership of like-minded organisations.

International Day of Happiness has been celebrated since 2013 to make people aware of the importance of happiness in their lives. The UN has initiated this by including the Right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness in the Internal Law for Human Rights.

"Happiness is not achieved by the conscious pursuit of happiness; it is generally the by-product of other activities."

- ALDOUS HUXLEY

The concept of International Happiness Day is based on the Gross National Happiness (GNH) concept of measuring happiness which was started in Bhutan. The report is prepared on indicators such as per capita income, GDP, health, social cooperation, mutual trust, freedom to make life-related decisions, and generosity.
