(PRWEB UK) 1 April 2013
Wednesday the 20th March 2013 was International Happiness Day which marked the first ever formal worldwide celebration of mankind’s quest for contentment. The United Nations Resolution was officially described as recognising, ‘The pursuit of happiness as a fundamental human goal.’
The day aims to increase awareness of the importance of happiness and highlight how being unhappy can really affect a person’s wellbeing. In 2011 the UK consumed over 47 million anti depressant prescriptions and saw the highest suicide rates since 1986 – two figures that indicate a certain level of unhappiness in the UK.
Wellbeing can be helped by discussing and talking to others and trying complementary methods such as hypnotherapy. The National Council for Hypnotherapy is the UK’s most established hypnotherapist directory and gives a detailed account of local hypnotherapist throughout the UK. Hypnotherapy can help those who suffer with anxiety and depression and help them to change the way they feel about situations and triggers of unhappiness.
A representative from the National Council for Hypnotherapy explained, ‘Nobody likes to feel unhappy and long term sadness can result in depression. Events like International Happiness Day can raise awareness of the pleasure of feeling great and having good wellbeing. Hypnotherapy can aid clients in improving their moods and help them in their quest for happiness.’
The National Council for Hypnotherapy continues to raise the awareness of hypnotherapy.
