Act Happy Day

Act Happy Day is an American holiday dedicated to happiness. This is a fairly broad concept, which everyone can interpret in their own way. However, the pursuit of happiness is one of the main desires of many people. Celebrating this day makes you feel happy! The holiday is celebrated annually on the third Monday of March.


The history of Act Happy Day begins in 2004, when Dr. Anderson took the initiative to establish the holiday. He was a skilled surgeon who studied human biomechanics. Much attention was paid to the relationship between a person’s emotional state and his physical health, as well as many personal qualities. He found that people who smile and laugh more often are easier to handle stressful states, they are more contactable and more liked by the people around them.

One of the popular theories was that you should specifically impose a feeling of happiness on yourself. Even if you feel bad, sad, depressed, guilty, etc., make yourself feel happy. Direct your entire mental flow toward that. The doctor claims that the psychological technique described really helps to lift your spirits and make you feel better.
