Choosing Joy: Celebrating International Day of Happiness


Every year on March 20th, we come together to acknowledge the International Day of Happiness. While you may not throw a big party for today or alter your daily routine, this day warrants both celebration and reflection. Why, you ask? Because this annual event serves as a powerful reminder of the significance of joy in our lives and the pursuit of happiness as a fundamental human aspiration. For me, I believe that happiness is a state of being – a conscious choice that we make every day.

In honor of the International Day of Happiness, let’s dive deeper into what it truly means to be happy and the profound impact consciously choosing happiness can have on our lives.

Defining Happiness

What does it mean to be happy? The answer may vary from person to person, influenced by individual experiences, beliefs, and values. For some, happiness may be found in moments of laughter and companionship, while for others, it may lie in personal achievements or acts of kindness.

Through different interpretations, one common thread emerges – happiness is a state of contentment, fulfillment, and inner peace. It’s not solely dependent on external circumstances but is cultivated from within, and often rooted in gratitude, acceptance, and resilience.

Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions.

— Dalai Lama

Making the Choice to Be Happy

In a world filled with challenges and uncertainties, the pursuit of happiness can sometimes feel difficult. Despite anything and everything we may face, we each possess the power to shape our own happiness. It is a conscious choice, a mindset that transcends adversity. Choosing happiness is not about denying the existence of pain or ignoring difficulties but rather embracing them as important parts of the human experience. It is about finding beauty in the ordinary, seeking peace in moments of stillness, and fostering connections that nourish the soul.

Cultivating Happiness

So, how do we cultivate happiness in our lives? The path to happiness is as unique as each individual journey. It may involve practicing mindfulness and self-reflection, cultivating meaningful relationships, or pursuing passions that ignite our souls. At Bene by Nina, we believe in the transformative power of self-care and self-expression as catalysts for happiness. Whether it’s taking five minutes for yourself after the rush of a long day or indulging in one of your favorite meals, we encourage you to prioritize your well-being and embrace the moments that bring you joy. Self-care isn’t just a luxury; it’s a vital investment in your mental, emotional, and physical health.

Embracing Joy and Spreading Happiness

As we celebrate the International Day of Happiness, let’s focus on our commitment to cultivate joy and spread kindness wherever we go. Cherish the simple pleasures that enrich our lives and extend a hand of compassion to those in need. Together, we can create a world where happiness knows no bounds. And remember – happiness is not a destination but a journey.
