Why is the International Day of Happiness celebrated every year?
March 20th 2013, the United Nations Organization decided to celebrate for the first time the International Day of Happiness, by recognizing through a event the importance of a person’s state of mind for social development.
said proclamation was started in the country of Bhutana nation known for being the happiest in the world by prioritizing this state of mind over economic factors to measure the well-being of the population.
Bhutan was responsible for presenting data, references and background on happiness to spread its importance globally through digital tools, delivering as final product the World Happiness Report.
