What is Happiness Day?
In June 28, 2012 the United Nations voted for The International Day of Happiness Resolution 66/281 based on an initiative by United Nations adviser Jayme Illien.
This resolution recognized the pursuit of happiness as a human right and a "fundamental human goal."
It also emphasized the need for a more inclusive, equitable and balanced approach to economic growth that promotes sustainable development, poverty eradication, happiness and the well-being of all peoples.
What is Happiness?
The question of human happiness has been an issue of debate for centuries, and, to this day, there is no universal agreement for its definition.
Nonetheless, the discussion on happiness usually distinguishes between: happiness as a temporary emotional state, and overall happiness, which has to do with how we feel about the direction of our life as a whole.
Psychological science suggests that overall happiness is based on our sense of purpose and meaning in life, our relationship with ourself and with others, as well as, our day-to-day emotional well-being.
With that in mind, enjoy happiness day!
