Happiness is good for your health. A review of hundreds of studies has found compelling evidence that happier people have better overall health and live longer than their less happy peers.
Interestingly, 50% of our happiness is genetic, 10% is environmental, but the rest is in our control.
40% of our happiness can be helped through 3 simple habits. Your community can create this month of activities based on the science of happiness, designed to make your community happier. Businesses, organizations, and individuals join together to increase happiness by creating social ties, sponsoring events, and promoting the 3 simple habits of happiness. This results in a community of individuals who are happier, healthier, and more connected socially.
We are working on a package that can help your community develop their own happiness month! if this sounds interesting contact us and let us know. We will let you know as soon as we have something that you can use. For an example of a successful program check out www.gorgehappiness.org. This rural region covering 4 counties has developed happiness month to include thousands of participants and hundreds of individual, organizational, and corporate partners. They have a lot of fun and spread the happiness habits and social connections that increases health, vigor, and social feeling.
