Here's one for your diary - 20th of March is the International Day of Happiness! Here are our 5 ways to tell if you’re happy:
- You love waking up in the morning
Whilst some people dread the sound of their alarm clock, every morning it comes as music to your ears! In fact, as soon as you hear it you jump out of bed excited to take on the day ahead.
- You smile for no reason
Do people often ask you why you can’t stop smiling? It’s because you’re happy and you know it and you’re not afraid to show it! So crack open those purely whites for the world to see because whether it’s the birds singing in the trees or simply lending someone a helping hand – in your eyes it’s all worth smiling about!
- You laugh out loud
It has been scientifically proven that being in contact with happy people can increase the likeliness of you being happy by 15%. This is just one of the reasons why you are a true believer that laughter is the best medicine and since you have research on your side, you’re ready for a daily dose of it!
- You want others to share your happiness
And you’re happy that they’re happy! You never hold any hard feelings against the success of the people around you, in fact, you’re their biggest cheerleader and always around to celebrate the victory moments in their life as well as your own.
- You don’t sweat the small stuff
Spilt your morning coffee? Missed the bus to work? The little hiccups in your day aren’t going to get you down. When the going gets tough, you know just how to bring yourself back down to earth and focus on the important things and people in your life. You are dedicated to living in the moment and always do your best to remain positive.
