1. We should try to occupy ourselves with something we enjoy. We may also take up a new hobby and learn new skills.
2. Doing things for others makes a lot of people happy. You will work with children or individuals who need help and support in your local community as a volunteer. The planet is a happier place when people smile.
3. On International Happiness Day, spread the word about the importance of happiness in maintaining good health. In our lives, sharing happiness and maintaining mental health are essential.
