June is National Smile Month in the UK! And so we are launching The Happiness Project!
The Happiness Project will hopefully give us all something to smile about for National Smile Month as we celebrate with a whole range of special things for June!
The daily Happiness Reports will bring you the best and the brightest in animal happiness, including the latest research, products, and ideas. From the scientific journals to the news to the park, get your dose of happy here!
We will also be doing a daily happiness diary, Delivering the Goods. The whole Be That Dog team will keep a daily diary as we deliver the “goods of happiness” through the month of June. Happiness research at Harvard University has suggested that there are three goods of happiness: doing good for others; doing things you are good at (and less of what you’re not good at!); and doing good for yourself. And if you have ideas of how we can deliver more good, do write in and let us know! Or let us know on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
Aubrey Beardsley will be doing a special series, The Happy Prince, and Other Tails, with all the smiles and happy faces from Aubrey and all the other tails that he meets on his adventures.
Huw Le Lytle will be providing a Bedlington gentleman’s guide to happiness in his new series for June, Bedlington Steps to Respectability, Usefulness and Happiness.
Howard Spring will be taking us on more of his neighbourhood happy trails in Howard’s Endz.
And Jefferson Airplane will be taking on one of the greatest critics of happiness in his new series for June – Jeff versus Nietzsche.
And don’t forget some of our regular features …
Aubrey Beardsley will also be doing a special “happiness” month of Aubrey’s Causeries, reviewing films that are bound to make you happy.
And of course, The Daily Buzzin’ will keep on buzzin’ all month with That’s News To Me and Is That A Fact. With the occasional Daily Find from the talented resident artist, Howard Spring. And every Friday, get all the latest celebrity gossip in Huw Le Lytle’s A Little Beddie Told Me, as well as finding out Where It’s At with Howard Spring for the weekend.
So please join us on our happiness project! As Charlie Chaplin said, “You’ll find that life is still worthwhile, if you just smile.”
