International Happiness Day quotes to help you feel amazing

The first day of spring brings with it a new feeling of excitement, doesn’t it? We see the trees change shape, bringing with them beautiful colors, as the mood lifts from the quiet winter to a blossoming new season of warmth. I’ve got the perfect list of International Happiness Day quotes for you to enjoy – designed to uplift your mood!

“Count your age by friends, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears.” ― John Lennon

I love this because age really is just a number. It’s the quality of connections we make in life that bring us so much happiness and joy, with each human innately craving a source of friendship and love. When it comes to self-love, we can only become the best versions of us for our loved ones by working on our mindset.

“Happiness depends upon ourselves,” – Aristotle

Joy is a choice. We are in control of our happiness, and there are many shifts we can make energetically to feel happier on an everyday basis. One of the techniques I love to teach is happiness alarms. Don’t just use an alarm to wake up: use it to remind you to break out into dance, to choose joy every time it goes off. Set them every few hours.

“Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your actions.” — Dalai Lama

We can’t just pray and hope we’ll start feeling happy one day. We’re all born crying, after all! It takes deep inner work to become happy, but there is no pressure to feel joy all of the time. Being human means we have to allow ourselves to feel all emotions: sad, grief, shameful, low, guilty, and numb.

“They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world: someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for.” ― Tom Bodett

This is perhaps my favourite quote ever. That ‘someone to love’ can be ourselves, a loving partner, family and friends. The ‘doing’ aspect is also particularly important because I love simply being on some days. On other days, I put my everything into living my purpose – and that’s to bring peace to others’ lives.

“The constant happiness is curiosity.” —Alice Munro

To always be learning is to feel happy. If we become stagnant and stop developing an interest for anything, we become bored, and this manifests into sadness. By keeping our hearts and minds open to new people, experiences, and lessons, we truly allow ourselves to flow with life’s natural twists and turns.

“If you want happiness for an hour—take a nap. If you want happiness for a day—go fishing. If you want happiness for a year—inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime—help someone else.” — Chinese Proverb

I love this, because helping others is one of the most uplifting actions we can do to feel happy. When we share our personal happiness and kindness with others, it works energetically with the law of attraction to bring more kindness into your life. What you put out, you get back, and that’s why International Kindness Day quotes are important.

“For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

On a powerful celebration like today, we can’t forget one of the most important International Happiness Day quotes out there. This is the perfect reminder that most of the things we feel angry about is a waste of energy. We are only hurting ourselves more by choosing anger, but please know that it’s okay to sometimes feel rage. You can tackle the feeling of anger by moving it through your body: go for a walk, punch your pillow, or even dance with expression to shift your physical energy.

“Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.” ― Abraham Lincoln

We choose whether we want to stay bitter and resentful or to become happy, which is why this is one of the most important International Happiness Day quotes. Many people can become stagnant in energy and find it scarier to leave this negative mindset behind, but focusing on our limiting beliefs and seeing what is getting in our way is the only way we will find true fulfilment.

“Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.” ― Marthe Troly-Curtin

It’s never a waste of time to enjoy yourself. It could be as simple as running a bath in the evening or even taking some time away from your computer to do something playful, like set up a board game with friends or even sit down for an evening with Netflix. This is one of my personal favourite International Kindness Day quotes!

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” – Mahatma Gandhi

When we are in true alignment, we stop letting external factors get in our way and start listening to how our body naturally reacts to certain situations. This is our intuition sending us messages, which helps us make decisions through our bodies rather than just asking everyone for advice that just doesn’t resonate.
