The secret
to happiness

At last, scientists are starting to discover what really makes us happy. It has nothing to do with what we have and everything to do with what we Do. The brightest minds at Action for Happiness and Do Something Different have come together to create Do Happiness, designed to bring all the good stuff we know about happiness directly into your life.

Would you like to be happier?

When asked, most people say that they would rather have more happiness than more wealth.* And yet so few of us deliberately spend time developing our own happiness. Do Happiness is a unique online programme that sends you special positive actions designed to boost your own happiness and help make others around you happier too.

* Results from a nationally-representative YouGov poll of adults in the UK by Action for Happiness.
