It’s National I Want You to be Happy Day, on March 3, giving each of us the opportunity to brighten someone’s day through simple acts of kindness and selflessness.

Happiness is a state of a mind. Taking certain steps every day will help you on your journey to happiness. Here are a few ways in which you can try to help you on your way…

  1. Focus on the good, the positive aspects of your life 
  2. Develop good habits 
  3. Live a healthy life, make sure to fill your body with goodness and nutrients and some exercise 
  4. Stop comparing yourself  to others 
  5. You have a choice – choose happiness
  6. Do at least one activity you enjoy every day
  7. Manage your stress less
  8. Talk and share your feelings and thoughts 
  9. Get plenty of sleep


  1. We enjoy making other people happy

    Making other people happy makes us happy. We enjoy it even if we don’t know the person we’re making happy! Being kind to strangers invokes the same feelings of happiness as doing kind acts for those we know and love.

  2. We want stronger relationships

    We all want the absolute best for our family and friends so when it comes to showing them or telling them we want them to be happy, of course, we’re all in! Spreading happiness strengthens the bonds of friendship so we love today’s holiday for its simple contribution to stronger relationships.

  3. It is better to give than to receive

    Some people enjoy picking out the perfect gift they know someone will love. Demonstrating how well you know someone and care for them through a gift or even through another gesture of kindness gives us a sense of satisfaction and pleasure that is more intense than being the recipient of a gift ourselves.
