It’s 20th March 2019. Here’s wishing you a joyful International Day of Happiness!
Do this simplest of happiness practices today…a smile, a wave, an exchange of words with someone. Initiate it and notice when you receive it too. You’re creating what’s called positivity resonance. It fills up your wellbeing credit bank, so you will actually be healthier and happier by the end of the day.
By the way, you’ll also have been more creative as a problem-solver and increased your capacity to take action for positive impact in your work.
It’s so simple, I know that you’re tempted not to believe me, but the science of wellbeing backs it up, so really, get on with being happy today if you’re committed to being a change-maker.
Flow In Action + You > happiness = increase your positive impact for people and planet
You may not know yet that you can design solutions around proven wellbeing practices and measures to increase positive impact. And that is where Flow In Action comes in to help you.
We create the conditions for you – as youth, educators, entrepreneurs, impact investors and change-making organisations – to integrate wellbeing into your work to:
We introduce, explain, signpost, provide practical solutions and strategic business development support integrating well-being solutions into your activities; starting with our scene-setting workshop on why designing around happiness and wellbeing matters.
It’s more than a day!
International Day of Happiness was adopted by the UN in 2013, “its resolution 65/309 entitled “Happiness: towards a holistic approach to development”, conscious that the pursuit of happiness was a fundamental human goal, recognized that the gross domestic product (GDP) indicator was not designed to and did not adequately reflect the happiness and well-being of people.”
The UN recognised that to achieve the sustainable development goals for the good of all, we need to do things differently and integrate wellbeing, not just as a measure but as an approach in policies, strategies and delivery at a local level of the SDGs in every community.
Young people get it!
They may not always have the words but they intuitively feel it and know it – that we are all connected and interdependent. Last Friday, they got themselves out there to march for climate action.
Gen Z is not waiting for your permission. They are demanding the economics of flourishing, where we design education, healthcare, businesses, products and services for the wellbeing of the planet.
They understand, that more than ever the wellbeing of people and people, which are inextricably linked to each other, have become much more than a ‘nice-to-have’; they have become a ‘have-to-have’ - challenging us to be better, ‘fully human’ and dare to be different in the ways that we behave towards each other and as consumers.
So? Do you dare?
All that you need to do is get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how the economics of flourishing can help you and your organisation.
