The first day of spring always makes me happy. This year, the first day of Spring also happens to be the International Day of Happiness. The perfect combination! Many of us have had brutal winters this year and in Pittsburgh, we have had way too many single digit temperatures and -0 days. Even though we had a little blast of snow today, it’s the first day of spring which means summer is right around the corner-and THAT makes me extra happy. According to Shawn Achor, author of The Happiness Advantage, happiness leads to greater levels of success. I recently attended one of his lectures and it was fascinating to listen to the statistics from studies that he has done which illustrate how our lives improve as we become more positive. I’ve attached a couple of pictures that make me happy whenever I see them. You can bet there will be a picture of the beach included!
Have a happy first day of spring! I’d love to hear what makes you happy.
