Happy March

Happy March
and
Happy UN International Day of Happiness!


March is full of Happy Occasions. One of the good Happiness Habits that you can cultivate to increase your own Happiness is to celebrate more: celebrate the Happy Occasions, celebrate what is good and what is working in your life; your successes and what you have achieved so far; and most importantly, celebrate the special people in your life. Here are a list of the Happy Occasions happening in March, and simple ways to celebrate them.

International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women. IWD first emerged from the activities of labour movements in the beginning of the twentieth century in North America and Europe. In 1908, about 15,000 women marched through New York City demanding shorter hours, better pay and voting rights; women have fought for equality. Three years later, in 1911, the first International Women’s Day was held.  However, the United Nations began celebrating International Women’s Day on 8 March during International Women’s Year, in 1975. International Women’s Day is a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change, and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women living an extraordinary life in their communities.

Celebrate and honor all the special women and females in your life on Women’s Day: invite them to your home or take them out; cook a special dish for them; help with the daily chores at home; buy them a small gift, like flours for example; and/or send them a handwritten letter or postcard expressing your love, appreciation and gratitude.

Happy International Women’s Day
to all the Women in the World!


20 March: UN International Day of Happiness.  

In July 2011, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution which recognized happiness as a “fundamental human goal” and called for “a more inclusive, equitable and balanced approach to economic growth that promotes … happiness and well-being of all people.

In April 2012, the first UN conference on Happiness was held in New York. In July 2012, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution which declared that the International Day of Happiness will be observed on 20 March every year. It was celebrated for the first time in 2013. This was a major shift in people’s attitudes, as they are starting to recognize that increasing Happiness and Well-Being is as important as economic growth. 

The resolution was initiated by Bhutan, a country which recognized the value of national Happiness over national income since the early 1970s, and famously adopted the goal of Gross National Happiness over Gross National Product. It also hosted a High Level Meeting on “Happiness and Well-Being: Defining a New Economic Paradigm” during the sixty-sixth session of the General Assembly.

Spring


20 March: Spring
Equinox
(Autumn in the southern hemisphere).

The Spring Equinox, falls this year on March 20, 2019, marks the astronomical first day of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. The word equinox comes from the Latin words for “equal night” —aequus (equal) and nox (night). On the equinox, the length of day and night is nearly equal in all parts of the world.  With the equinox, you can enjoy the increasing sunlight hours, with earlier dawns and later sunsets.

22 March: UN World Water Day.

World Water Day is an annual UN observance day that highlights the importance of freshwater. The day is used to advocate for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. World Water Day is celebrated around the world with a variety of events. These can be educational, theatrical, musical or lobbying in nature.

Water is essential for Life; in fact Water is Life. More than 70% of your body (and the Earth) is Water.

“Somewhere along the way, we have forgotten how to show our appreciation for water.”

“Water has a secret life. It shows us how to find Happiness. It reveals the meaning of Love and Nature. It shows us the path that humankind must take to find the answers you seek.”
