Today is International Day of Happiness. Back in 2006, the United Nations New World Order project deemed March 20th as a day to advance happiness as a fundamental human right for all human beings. To celebrate, the U-N is calling on all 206 nations and territories to take the “Ten Steps to Global Happiness” challenge and call to action. The official event website has a number of recommendations for how to keep calm during a difficult time.
