Since our last Happiness Now publication, we've celebrated International Happiness Day in a few different ways. We’ve met with some business leaders in the Netherlands, in Ohio, and connected with our followers on social media to hear about what makes them happy.
Check out what we've shared, where we've been, and where we're going [San Antonio, Dubai, and Mumbai - we're looking at you]!
Sharing Your [and our] #HappinessHabits:
If you’ve been following us on social media, you might notice that we gladly celebrated and shared #happinesshabits on International Happiness Day (March 20th, 2018). We wanted to know what things you did to create some happiness in your life – big or small!
Looking at the happy photos on my phone at least once a day, reliving those moments is a way of re-experiencing a happy time and feeling grateful for it. – Jenn Lim, DH
I celebrate life as a ‘surprise party,’ on Wednesday I ramp up the surprise by celebrating and inviting people to join me making Wednesdays Wacky - anywhere and everywhere I go. – Denise T.
Every morning I walk down to the water with a cup of coffee and sit on the pier looking out as the morning sun comes out. – Laura Putnam, Motion Infusion
Waking up early for work can make me crabby at times; so what I do is pretend I'm going out on a hike or horseback ride. The circumstance doesn't truly matter, it's all about the mindset!
– Angie D.
One of the #happinesshabits I practice: meditating 10 minutes a day helps me focus on the things that really matter on a personal and professional level. – Carlos Piera, DH Spain
De-clutter... de-clutter. I feel space is always healthy whether it’s your kids’ closets, desk, office, or – even your mind.
– Molly Fletcher, Game Changers Podcast
I turn on music & dance! (at home). While at work I try to walk with a bounce in my step, and a song in my voice. :)
– Wendy R.
As a team, we encourage self-development and self-care for each other and appreciate honest communication always with a “yes-and” mentality! – the fun dept. team

After the success of our Workplace Happiness Bootcamp in Mumbai, we've decided to host a few more with Happiitude! Read about the experience of one our previous attendees:
“Before attending the workshop, I was struggling to figure out how we can connect employees across geographies from different cultures to [a] new organization culture. The insight about aligning organization values with [personal] values was the answer to it. Now, we’re reflecting and rethinking the entire project to align organization core values throughout.”
