Action for Happiness - Happier January 2021
Daily actions to help make yourself and others happier.
How can we start this new year happier? Things have certainly not been easy over the last year, and we are still in difficult and uncertain times. The best way to try to handle our difficult emotions and experiences is by focusing on what we can control. This month, we're encouraging everyone to focus on small steps to try to boost happiness - for ourselves and others around us - to spread kindness and hopefully inspire others to do the same.
The Ten Keys to Happier Living are based on a review of the latest research from psychology and related fields. Everyone's path to happiness is different, but the evidence suggests these Ten Keys consistently tend to have a positive impact on people's happiness and well-being.
The first five keys (GREAT) are about how we interact with the outside world in our daily activities. The second five keys (DREAM) come from inside us and depend on our attitude to life. Together they spell "GREAT DREAM".
The monthly Action for Happiness calendars are packed with actions you can take to help create a happier and kinder world. You can download them in different languages on https://www.actionforhappiness.org/
The Action for Happiness app is based on the themes and actions from the monthly calendars and aims to give users a couple of friendly "nudges" each day - firstly that day's action in the morning and secondly an inspiring message towards the end of the day.
You can download it on iOS and GooglePlay.
