What makes you happy? Happiness Happens Month is a whole month dedicated to celebrating what makes you happy. Started by The Secret Society of Happy People in 1999, Happiness Happens is about connecting with community. “The month reminds us that happiness happens one small moment at a time and it’s our job to recognize those moments when they happen. It reminds us that sometimes a small action boosts our happiness. It reminds us that happiness is a personal experience and it’s also contagious.”

Happiness Happens Month encourages people to take stock of their lives and try to do and think about things that make them happy and to share this joy with others. Self-care and volunteerism are encouraged as ways to celebrate this month.

Here are a few ideas to spread some happiness:

Introduce yourself to a new neighbor
Double your tip
Don’t look at your phone during a meal with others
Call a friend or relative you haven’t spoken to in a long time
Send some snail mail
Listen to someone vent (don’t offer advice)
Leave a positive comment on your friend’s social media
Pick up trash on your street
Cook a meal using fresh ingredients
Intentionally schedule “me time”

Share inspirational quotes and photos of cute animals on social media
Pay for the person behind you in line (toll booth, drive-thru)
Host a craft night
Text a funny quote or picture to a friend
Share your struggles in a real way that could inspire someone else
Help someone carry something
Take a walk, even just around the block
Learn a new skill
Take a friend to a concert in the park
Visit and donate to a local museum
