Going All Out for Happiness Day!

OK, so I just found out today is Happiness Day, according to the United Nations. I’m supposed to share something about what makes me happy,so let me tell you I was talking to a family member of a patient I saw yesterday and she expressed the warmest gratitude for the care her spouse is receiving at The University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

Now that made my day. Happy Happiness Day 😀

What makes you happy?



  1. It’s a fascinating concept-happiness day. It got me thinking about different levels or areas of happiness/contentment.
    For me, global happiness would be something like world peace.
    Personal happiness would be the happiness of friends and family, especially of the offspring variety.
    Professional happiness would be seeing my patients getting more satisfaction out of their lives. (And maybe more readers of POLL)
    And then there’s the little things happiness-excellent cappuccino, a good night’s sleep, the first buds of Spring, cheerful lighting, a punctual and not-too-crowded subway, watching a juggler in Washington Square Park.
