Action for Happiness' mission is to help people create a happier world, with a culture that prioritizes happiness and kindness.

Building mass awareness of the scientific knowledge of happiness can change how we approach our personal lives, how we educate our children, how we behave at work, and how public policy is made. And it can help us act in ways that consider the happiness of future generations as well as our own.

Everything we value in life (such as health, justice, freedom, economy, environment or anything else) matters because it contributes to the well-being of current and future generations, we want to build a world where happiness is at the center of everything we do as individuals, communities, organizations and governments.

Happiness is not ignoring difficult feelings. Being present with all of our emotions – and feeling sad when we need to – contributes to long-term well-being.

We are all at different points on our happiness journey, from surviving to thriving. When we are surviving, daily life can be difficult; Our well-being is low and we don't have the ability to provide much support to others. When we are supportive, we do a lot to help others, but we don't give enough priority to our own well-being. When we are self-careful, we find ways to feel good and take care of ourselves, but we don't necessarily make a difference for others. When we are truly thriving, we are generally happy ourselves (despite life's ups and downs) and we are also doing meaningful things to bring happiness to others as well.

That's why Action for Happiness helps people take action to increase happiness for themselves and others.

Together we make a bigger difference

Happiness is not an individual search. When we connect it's easier to make happiness a habit, feel a sense of belonging and have a positive impact.

Coming together with others brings the inspiration and support we need to continue taking action. We help people do this in a variety of ways, including through our App: Action for Happiness: Get Tips
