We’re Bringing the World Together With #HappyActs

Calling all happy people! For 10 years, Live Happy and thousands of Happy Activists around the world have been championing the benefits of practicing acts of kindness during our #HappyActs campaign. These #HappyActs are intentional positive actions that anyone can do to make the world a happier place. Whether your #HappyAct is big, such as starting a community garden, or small, like complimenting someone, every act counts.

Research shows that when you practice acts of kindness, you not only boost your mood, but you also boost the mood of the people on the receiving end of your good gestures. These positive interventions can reduce negative feelings and increase life satisfaction. The secret power behind #HappyActs is the ripple effect they can have and how fast those positive emotions can spread. The more people who practice #HappyActs, the more happiness there is to enjoy.

“If you can have positive interactions, which is what #HappyActs is about, then you can pass that along to the next person who will then have more positive interactions,” says Live Happy CEO and Cofounder Deborah Heisz. “You become the center of a ripple of positive activity not just for that day but hopefully stretching into weeks and months and genuinely making the world a happier place.”

Three Ways to Share Happiness in March

This month, we are recruiting as many people as we can to join the Happiness Movement. It’s a special time to be happy because  the whole world will unite in celebrating the International Day of Happiness on March 20. With a global theme of “Bringing the World Together,” there’s no better time to bring awareness to this happy cause.

Here are three ways you can participate in the #HappyActs movement:

#HappyActs.

Every day this month we will be posting #HappyActs ideas on our social media networks. You can follow along with our free 31 Ideas for #HappyActs calendar. Just download, print and place the calendar in a place where you can see it often. This is a fun, easy way to focus on positive acts and engage with people in your community. Because this is a social activity, be sure to share your acts of kindness on your social networks and tag #HappyActs so we can see you.

Digital Happiness Wall.

We’re inviting Happy Activists from all around the world to write their #HappyActs on our digital happiness wall so we can enjoy a truly global event. Just visit livehappy.com/wall and use the QR code to post or post from your social media with #HappyActs and tell the world about positive things that you have done or have been done for you.

Local Happiness Wall.

If you really want to spread some joy in March, you may host your own happiness wall in your workplace, school or home. This is a perfect way to get the conversation started about why happiness is so important to living a healthier, more satisfied life. Creating a happiness wall is easy. Just visit livehappy.com/download to download a printable wall, or create your own DIY wall. Please share photos of your wall using #HappyActs #YourLocation on our digital wall or on your social media accounts!

We hope you join us this month in Bringing the World Together with our #HappyActs movement! The more people who join the #HappyActs movement, the greater the positive impact we’ll all have on our homes, workplaces and communities.
