Self Spark Happy Day 2013 – Celebrating International Day of Happiness

Self Spark Happy Day 2013 - Celebrating International Day of Happiness

Self Spark Singapore will host a Happy Day to celebrate the world’s first International Day of Happiness. This is an open source, action day for personal growth. It’s like doing a happiness work out.

This is also our way of saying “no” to the Gallup poll stating Singapore is the least positive nation in the world. Come if you think Singapore is or can be a happy place!

The Happy Day is based upon the book The How of Happiness, by Dr. Sonja Lyubomirsky.

The facilitator will briefly introduce participants to each of the 12 scientifically proven strategies that Dr. Lyubomirsky describes for improving our happiness. And then challenge each participant to immediately do them! These Happiness Challenges include doing random acts of kindness, briefly meditating, writing gratitude letters, exercising as a group, practicing forgiveness with a partner, describing your “best possible self”, making new friends, etc.

This is fun, fast, and family-friendly event.
