Today is International Happiness Day which is a good reminder that we should all be looking for as much joy and happiness in our lives as possible.
Finding ways for activists and human rights defenders to manage the challenges and stresses is an important part of the emotional wellbeing programme Magool founder Leyla Hussein developed with The Girl Generation. Making time for the people, places and special moments that make us happy is a great way to bring balance back into our busy schedules.
Take a few minutes today and every day to do something just for you. It can be as simple as enjoying a quick break in the sunshine, taking a 10 minute walk or meeting a good friend for a cup of tea and chat. It can really change the mood for the rest of your day.
