Monday 20th March is #internationaldayofhappiness.

Did you know happiness and health are intrinsically related. Being happy helps us eat healthier, be more active and sleep better. In turn it helps lower high blood pressure and excess body fat, resulting in lower risk of stroke and cardiovascular disease.

So how can you achieve happiness...try this:

1. Be mindful - relax your breathing and notice "how am I feeling now?"
2. Be grateful - look around and ask yourself "what am I thankful for?"
3. Be kind - with warm feelings, ask yourself "who do I want to send love to?"
