Happiness is Contagious

Happiness isn’t something ready made. It comes from our own actions.

— Dalai Lama

Action for Happiness is a movement about encouraging the shift to a happier society where more people are leading happy, balanced and fulfilling lives.  They believe that small acts of kindness can make big positive changes, that “doing good feels good” and kindness breeds happiness. Their mission is to “bring together people from all walks of life and all different backgrounds. People who not only care and believe that happiness and well being is important, but people who believe that we can each make a difference, not only to our own happiness but the happiness of others through the conscious choices we make, and the actions that we take in our daily lives.”

What small actions will you take to increase the happiness of those around you?
