January 2020: Happy New Year Calendar from Action for Happiness

Let’s get 2020 off to the happiest possible start. This Happiness Calendar has daily suggested actions to do throughout January 2020 to help you be happier yourself and bring more happiness to others too. UCCA’s publicity and promotions chair (Diane Ahern) had been contemplating her New Year’s Resolutions and was searching for a monthly Kindness Calendar. She stumbled upon a series of monthly calendars from Action for Happiness, a movement of people committed to building a happier and more caring society. Diane is providing this calendar as a service to those in our University City community who may want to spread more happiness. UCCA neither supports nor endorses the Action for Happiness organization or movement … but likes the idea of spreading happiness and kindness throughout University City.
