Friendly February: Action for Happiness releases their Friendly February calendar


2022 Update: Action for Happiness has updated its website and program offerings. For the most-up-to-date information and calendar, please visit

From Action for Happiness: We need each other more than ever right now. This month let’s focus on reaching out to connect with others and doing our best to be a good friend. Our acts of kindness and connection ripple out and impact so many more people than we realize – and they also boost our own happy hormones too. In stressful times people around us may be feeling the strain, so let’s try to keep calm, take time to listen and show compassion.

Contributed by Diane Ahern. She 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 information 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.
