JOIN THE MOVEMENT TO MAKE THE WORLD A HAPPIER PLACE AT SADDLE RANCH ELEMENTARY HAPPINESS WALL and HAPPY DANCE
Live Happy Magazine Invites Highlands Ranch and surrounding area Residents to Spread Happiness with its
Fifth Annual #HappyActs Campaign
By 2030, depression and mental health problems will be among the most widespread and costly diseases in the developed world. Promoting resilience can prevent depression, anxiety and behavior problems in young people. Additionally, societal discourse has become increasingly fraught with polarization and distrust. **
How do we as a global society, seemingly mired in personal and political conflict, find a solution?
One promising answer—a global movement to make the world a happier place. An American organization, Live Happy, wants to mobilize the world during the month of March to get behind the UN-sanctioned International Day of Happiness, March 20.
During March, Live Happy is kicking off a monthlong #HappyActs celebration by providing an easy way for participants to spread happiness and make a positive difference in their lives and the lives of those around them.
“It’s easy to participate,” says #HappyActs spokesperson Marrielle Monte. “You can start simply, by making someone’s day a little brighter, and you can go bigger by spreading happiness on one of the Happiness Walls going up across the country.
#HappyActs sponsor Nerium International is partnering with Live Happy by building a record-breaking number of Happiness Walls in schools, malls and public places across North America and globally, including Highlands Ranch. The wall is one of a range of activities and fun ideas to be found at www.happyacts.org, including:
•Perform and share as many Happy Acts as possible during the month of March by taking a picture or video and using #HappyActs in your posts and tweets. You can download a free #HappyActs calendar to get inspiration.
•Focus on small actions you can do like giving a hug, saying a kind word or sharing your own happy moments by using #HappyActs.
•Create a wall! It’s easy to do—download a free Happiness Wall kit or purchase a wall kit from the Live Happy online store.
•Text 64600 with the word HappyActs for reminders and suggestions on sharing happiness in the month of March. Or sign up for our e-newsletter at happyacts.org to have happiness delivered right to your inbox.
•Visit a Live Happy Happiness Wall (for a complete list of wall locations, go to happyacts.org/map.
•Our #HappyActs to you: In the month of March, download our current digital edition of Live Happy magazine on iTunes or Google Play for free.
Research shows that happiness is an incredibly important part of life and should never be dismissed. Happy people tend to be more successful, live longer, have better connections with family and friends, miss less work and donate more. The science behind happiness, positive psychology, provides real world ways we can lead more fulfilling lives and help others do the same.
Live Happy and their partner Nerium are supporting this action by encouraging everyone to share what they can do to spread happiness on a local Happiness Wall. They are offering in kind support to give twenty students the opportunity to receive scholarships to attend the World Positive Education Accelerator June 25-28 in Fort Worth, Texas in recognition of those who participate.
Continue the celebration of happiness by reading the new May issue of Live Happy magazine with Harry Connick Jr. on the cover.
