World Happiness Day: Gen-Z switches to music, yoga, feel-good movies to combat stress Health News


World Happiness Day is celebrated on March 20 every year to recognize the importance of happiness and well-being in people’s lives around the world. The day was established by the United Nations in 2012 to promote happiness as a universal goal and to recognize the relevance of happiness and well-being as essential factors in the lives of individuals and communities.

Individuals approach happiness and emotional well-being with a unique perspective, often prioritizing self-care and personal fulfillment, and GenZ often embrace practices such as mindfulness, yoga, and meditation to manage stress and maintain a balanced state of mind. Unlike previous generations, GenZ are more open about mental health issues, seeking professional help and using online resources for support. They find joy in simple pleasures, such as spending time with loved ones, pursuing hobbies, and engaging in meaningful experiences.

Knowing this in India, attitudes towards mental wellness are evolving, with the aim of raising awareness to reduce the stigma associated with mental health in general. Insights from the Fiama Mental Wellbeing Survey 2023, conducted in collaboration with NielsenIQ, highlight GenZ’s efforts to redefine their approach to a happy mental state and sense of contentment.

This World Happiness Day, the survey explores the various beliefs, behaviors and key stressors for GenZ and Millennials, identifying the key stressors that bring them happiness and well-being.

In contrast to the ‘Fear of Missing Out’ (FOMO) at social events and activities, GenZ is taking a new approach, redefining FOMO as ‘the fun of missing out’. This shift forces individuals to set boundaries, prioritize their well-being, and engage in activities that truly bring them joy and fulfillment.

Despite the myriad of causes of stress and rising anxiety, the survey reveals that 51% of Indians who believe that social media has had a positive impact turn to online counseling as a treatment option. Additionally, yoga, meditation and exercise emerged as popular choices among 86% of Indians to combat stress, highlighting the important role of physical activity in maintaining mental balance.
