We must be happy in whatever we do study, work, shop, etc., in the past few years we have developed rapidly with all the new high-tech, gadgets & but we paid no attention whatsoever on being happy in the core. Happiness has been the focus of many leaders, philosopher & society developers over the past decades, yet we have failed to notice this, hardly one or two countries touch the bench Global Benchmark of Happiness set by UN.
Every year a theme is selected for this auspicious day; ‘Happier Together’ is the theme of this years’ international day of happiness. Share & spread happiness with people around us. Many NGOs organised events for it, the famous radio of South Africa will celebrate the day by playing natural music to spread positive vibes, a show called “Secret to a long & happy life” was aired yesterday.
