It's the International Day of Happiness!

Happy International Day of Happiness! Today the world celebrates happiness and all things that make us, well…happy!

Did you know that smiling can reduce stress, make you more productive, more approachable to others and, as a bonus, they’re pretty contagious?

This day is a little more than about smiling though. The UN, the force behind the International Day of Happiness, use this day as a way to recognise the importance of happiness in the lives of people around the world and putting an end to poverty, reducing inequality, and protecting our planet.

On the 14 March 2018, the World Happiness Report was released. 156 countries were ranked by their levels of happiness and 117 countries by the happiness of their immigrants. The results came from Gallup World Poll surveys taken between 2015-2017 that looked into areas related to change and stability.

The countries that came in the top ten scored highly in the key variables thought to be linked to happiness and well-being: income, healthy life expectancy, social support, freedom, trust and generosity. This year, Finland came out on top, followed by several other Scandinavian countries. The UK came in 19th.

So, what things make you happy?

Do you live to work or do you work to live? For many, work isn’t the be all and end all, and that is where working in a job such as supply teaching is perfect.

Keeping in mind the UN’s factors around well-being, how can SupplyNow help?

Income: With us, you can get rates up to 25% higher than with traditional teaching agencies. That means more money to do the things you love - perhaps you’re a secret frisbee golf champion…
