Today is the UN's International Day of Happiness.
And to find out how happy you may be, based on where you live, here's the UN's 2018 report on World Happiness or a simpler overview of the happiest countries in the world here.

Just for yourself. Because smiling lowers stress and simply makes us happier.
It's more comfortable to smile than frown. So give your face muscles a break.
And maybe that smile could turn into a laugh ...
Laughing tells your mind and body to relax, because you breathe out for longer than you breathe in. Remember those belly-aching laughs that make you feel you're gonna pass out until you finally gasp the air back in again? What better way to turn on your "rest and digest" hormones?
