Hooray! It’s The International Day of Happiness

Today is officially International Day of Happiness, and the LOOK team is feeling particularly chirpy. Well, it is almost the weekend after all.

To celebrate, we’ve created a super cool Pinterest board packed full of the things that make us happy, from shoes and spring flowers to the English countryside and dancing until 4am! Check it out here and feel free to re-pin your favourites.

So what exactly does make us happy? Well, according to the International Day of Happiness website, it’s all about GREAT DREAM – aka the ten keys to living happier:


Giving – do things for others

Relating – connect with people

Exercising – take care of your body

Appreciating – notice the world around

Trying Out – keep learning new things


Direction – have goals to look forward to

Resilience – find ways to bounce back

Emotion – take a positive approach

Acceptance – be comfortable with who you are

Meaning – be part of something bigger


Sounds pretty good to us. Enjoy International Day of Happiness and don’t forget to tell us what makes you happy on Twitter and Instagram @lookmagazine #internationaldayofhappiness
