How to be happy is a question many have searched to answer, from ancient philosophers to the most recent viral hashtag.

#100happydays marks the 100 Happy Days Challenge—an online campaign that encourages netizens to brighten their days by taking a pictures of moments, things, or people that make them happy. And to do it for 100 days in a row.

Campaign is based on the thought, that sometimes happiness lies waiting in the smallest details of everyday life—we just need to be attuned enough to recognise it.

So far, the Happy campaign has found one interesting fact: 71 percent of people tried to complete this challenge, but failed, cited “lack of time” as the main reason. 

Does it mean we don’t have time to be happy?
