Happiness is abuzz in the news this week with the revalation that we are all really rather stressed, anxious and fearful. The Mental Health Foundation has called for a national campaign to raise awareness of how emotions affect our health and behaviour, and what we can do about it.
It all sounds like a bit of hot air to me, but Ed Haliwell puts it rather well in The Guardian today.
Apparently we need to develop social and economic cohesion and moving towards values and behaviours that lead to happiness.
Sounds simple, eh?
The MHF have an hilarious campaign, not aimed at making us any happier, just making us realise how awful life is. They say:
As part of Mental Health Action Week, you can order your free information pack, which gives you information on fear and anxiety, as well as a poster to help you raise awareness of the week.
Wow, I feel happier already.
