The challenge is to take 8 selfies of the people, places and things that make you happy and post them on your favorite social media sites using the #HappinessHappens hashtag.
“We want people to pay attention to everything, big and small, that makes them happy during the normal course of the day and share it,” says Pamela Gail Johnson, Founder of the Secret Society of Happy People. “Sometimes we’re so much more comfortable chasing happiness that we really forget to appreciate it when it happens.”
Since its Happiness Happens Month the Society provides lots of celebration options at the Society website (http://sohp.com) including:
“This year more than 2200 people are participating in the Happiness Happens Month 31 Day Challenge on Facebook. You can join at any time and finish it in September,” says Johnson. “The selfie is one of the challenges and a great way to remind ourselves of what makes us happy and hope others will participate too.”
August was originally declared Happiness Happens Month in 2000 and is an annual tradition for the Secret Society of Happy People. August 8th will be the 16th Happiness Happens Day.
To sign up for the Happiness Happens Month activities, go to http://sohp.com/society-celebrations/happiness-happens-month/. Another option for people to share a token of happiness with family and friends is to share "happicons" via email, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest. The 31 "happicons" can be shared via http://sohp.com/what-is-happiness/happicons/.
