International Day of Happiness

It’s Friday
It’s the first day of Spring
It’s International Day of Happiness

This is the biggest day of the year for me! In honor of all of this positive energy going around I want to share some of my favorite ways increase positive attitudes. These are in no particular order.

Have a Great Day (Playlist, Spotify)
If you’re on Spotify, check out this playlist. I love it and it really will help you to have a great day. All of the song are fun and you’ll know most of them.

TED Talks (Charming Talks for a Boost on a Bad Day)
People seem to be pushing against Happiness day. IDK but people refuse to be happy sometimes. Here are 5 TED Talks to boost you out of those grumpy pants.

Nature

Gabby Bernstein (Inspiration)
One of my personal role models & inspirations in life. Everything she does is wonderful. Follow her on Instagram, try her Meditations, read her Books. I recommend all of it!

Kid President (Video Pep Talk)
ALWAYS a great pick-me-up. This kid is seriously inspiring! Seriously, if you haven’t already, or really even if you have, just take 4 minutes from your day and watch (or just listen) this 9 year old kid kick butt.

“We are all on the same team.” Something I say a lot, I don’t think people understand this still.

Happier (App & Website)
Happier was started by a woman with a seriously impressive background. She had achieved everything she thought she wanted and realized it’s experiences that matter. The App is a happiness journal where you keep track of things that make you happier every day, even as small as having a bathroom break when you’re a teacher and really had to pee.

Download the app on your phone or via their website.

Happiness Project (Book & Podcast)
This book is perfect for anyone. Not all of the topics may apply to you but there is great information for everyone. Don’t think that just because you’re a guy this book doesn’t apply to you. The Happiness Project synthesizes the wisdom of the ages with current scientific research, as Rubin brings readers along on her year to greater happiness.
I love listening to her podcasts on the train in the morning. A great way to add happiness to the day.
Here’s Gretchen site.

Bliss List (Book)
Discover your true Bliss & land your dream job with this book. Don’t check out their website, it’s not the best & put me off in the beginning but I ordered it via Amazon & love it!

Happiness is… (Book)
This happy little book contains 500 things to be happy about. It’s a great coffee table or bathroom book and a really great gift.
