The Way to Happiness Association is observing World Happiness Day (March 20) with a special presentation on how cleanliness and production can bring happiness.
Tennessee, US, 16th March 2023, ZEXPRWIRE, The urge to turn our homes inside out and clean, clean, clean, dates back thousands of years, and according to Country Living, is intertwined with many cultures and religions. The simple truth is also found in human nature. As HowStuffWorks explains, “fewer hours of daylight trigger the release melatonin in our brains, aka hormone that causes sleepiness. We literally don’t have the energy to deep clean during colder months. But once the days start getting longer, we’re energized by more sunlight and melatonin production subsides. Not to mention all that sunlight streaming through the windows probably makes the dust we’d forgotten about highly visible.”
To help promote Spring Cleaning, and how cleanliness and production leads to happiness, The Way to Happiness Association is holding a special presentation for families on March 18th, also coinciding with World Happiness Day (Mar 20).
The Way to Happiness Association was created to promote the book The Way to Happiness, written by humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard. The book’s 21 precepts are based on the principle that one’s survival depends on the survival of others. “Your own survival can be threatened by the bad actions of others around you,” he wrote. “You are important to other people. You are listened to. You can influence others.”
One way in which one’s own actions and influence can make a significant impact is the precept “Safeguard and Improve the Environment,” Mr. Hubbard wrote: “There are many things one can do to help take care of the planet. They begin with the idea that one should. They progress with suggesting to others they should. Man has gotten up to the potential of destroying the planet. He must be pushed on up to the capability and actions of saving it. It is, after all, what we’re standing on.”
The Way to Happiness precept for Safeguard and Improve Your Environment will be played during the special presentation to encourage spring cleaning.
World Happiness Day occurs each year on March 20th and is celebrated by the United Nations. According to un.org, “Since 2013, the United Nations has celebrated the International Day of Happiness as a way to recognize the importance of happiness in the lives of people around the world…The United Nations invites each person of any age, plus every classroom, business and government to join in celebration of the International Day of Happiness.” For more information on The Way to Happiness Association and its upcoming events, visit twthtn.org.
