After studying 99 percent of every nation on earth, Positive Psychology expert Ed Diener discovered that strong, healthy social relationships are the one common denominator of all the happiest places on Earth. Not only benefiting someone's emotional health profile, Diener's research suggests that people can even expect to live 28 years longer in the happiest nations.

What's one of the most effective ways of building strong relationships? By spending time with your loved-ones and letting them know how much they mean to you. Appreciation and gratitude speak volumes and give your loved one a sincere sense of purpose in life - one of the other common denominators of the happiest places on Earth.

When's the last time you wrote Dad a letter? What better time to shower him with praise and accolades for all that he has done for you over the years than by taking a few minutes and writing him for Father's Day! Hand-written notes are oftentimes kept as precious keepsakes and they can create a sense of intimacy with the one who wrote it. Of course, letters do not replace human contact, however, many people cherish them so much that they are a very close second.
