International Day of Happiness is celebrated on March 20th to promote happiness. In this blog post, we will explore what makes us happy, and we will hear from our apprentices who shared with us what brings them joy. We hope this blog post will inspire you to find your own happiness and share it with others.
Happiness is a state of mind characterized by a feeling of contentment, joy, and satisfaction. It is an emotional and mental state that is influenced by various factors such as relationships, health, wealth, and personal values. Happiness is not just a feeling; it is a way of life. It is about finding joy in the little things and creating positive experiences that enrich our lives. So, let’s hear from our Apprentices, and what makes them happy.
Guy Yearn, who works at Tafco, says that playing sports is a big reason for his happiness. He enjoys being part of a team and being able to shine through his individual qualities. Playing sports allows him to stay active, social, and competitive. It gives him a sense of purpose and accomplishment. Sports are an excellent way to keep our body and mind healthy and happy.
Playing sports is not only beneficial for our physical health, but it also helps us develop social skills, teamwork, and leadership qualities. It is an excellent way to meet new people, make friends, and create positive experiences. If you haven't tried playing sports before, give it a try. You might discover a new passion that brings you happiness.
Hoor Sanjania, who works at Insight Consultancy, says that photography is her hobby, and it brings her happiness. She enjoys capturing moments and creating memories through her camera lens. Photography allows her to express her creativity and connect with the world around her. It is a way for her to slow down and appreciate the beauty of life.
Photography is an excellent way to explore our creative side and capture the beauty of life. It allows us to see the world from a different perspective and appreciate the little things. If you haven't tried photography before, give it a try. You might discover a new way to express yourself and find happiness.
Amy Pickup, who works at ReelWorld, says that her dog Merlin brings her happiness. She enjoys spending time with him, playing with him, and taking him for walks. Merlin is an essential part of her life, and he brings her joy every day. We also have another Apprentice, Rebecca Skells from QD Commercial Group who says that her Labrador Lara brings her happiness. She enjoys spending time with her, taking her for walks, and cuddling with her. Lara is a loyal companion who brings joy into her life every day.
Animals are a great source of happiness. They are known to reduce stress and anxiety and provide us with unconditional love. If you have a pet, take some time to appreciate them and spend quality time with them. If you don't have a pet, consider adopting one. You might discover a new source of happiness.
A Happy Workplace
Jasmine Rance, who works at Aspex Visual Arts Trust, says that working at Aspex brings her happiness. She enjoys working in an environment that allows her to pursue her passion for art and creativity. She feels inspired by the people she works with and the projects she is involved in. Working at Aspex is not just a job; it is a way of life.
Working in an environment that aligns with our values and passions is essential for our happiness. It allows us to feel fulfilled and motivated. If you are not happy with your current job, consider exploring new opportunities that align with your interests and values.
Going to Concerts
Rebecca Skells from QD Commercial Group also enjoys going to concerts with her friends. She loves the energy and excitement of live music and the sense of community that comes with it. Going to concerts is not just about the music; it is about creating unforgettable experiences with the people we love.
Music is a great source of happiness. It has the power to lift our mood, inspire us, and bring us together. If you haven't been to a concert before, give it a try. You might discover a new way to connect with others and find happiness.
Spending time with loved ones
Niamh Welsh who works at Barrett Dixon Bell said that spending time with her family brings her happiness. Spending time with friends and loved ones had a strong positive impact on our mental health. It makes us feel closer to others. It can make us feel understood, accepted like we belong somewhere. Happiness is a feeling that we all strive for. It is something that we can create for ourselves and share with others.
Our apprentices have shared with us what brings them happiness, and we hope their stories have inspired you to find your own source of joy. Whether it's playing sports, photography, dogs, art, music, or anything else, find what brings you happiness and make it a part of your life.
