Joyful June 2021: Action for Happiness releases their Daily Action calendar


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

Courtesy of Action for Happiness: This month’s theme is all about finding the joy in life, even when things are difficult. Research has shown that experiencing positive emotions in a 3-to-1 ratio with negative ones leads to a tipping point beyond which we naturally become more resilient to adversity. So let’s train our brains to find the joy. You can learn more about the science behind this at our events this month too. Details at

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.
