5 Things That’ll Make You Happy From Around the Web

Genetics might account for up to 33 percent of our happiness (or lack thereof), but that doesn’t mean we’re powerless to improve our own moods. Sometimes all it takes is a change in mindset — no matter how small — to turn a crappy day into a good one. To help you shift into a happier gear, we’ve rounded up five things from around the web that inspire and delight us, and we hope they’ll do the same for you. We’ll be sharing our favorite happiness-boosters each week, so be sure to check back — and please share your own either in the comments or the community!

1. This heartfelt exchange of love between two carrots

Ah, young love. That time shortly after you've been ripped from the ground, when the world is big and new but you don't feel afraid because you're wrapped up in a loving embrace with someone who gets you — a carrot who truly understands. (Click the link to see 19 more carrot couples in love!)

2. This duck pretending to be a flamingo

This adult duck seems to have never grown out of the insecurities it felt during the Ugly Duckling stage, so it's trying desperately to blend in with the flamingos. Even though we'd love to see this duck embrace who s/he truly is, its impressive rendition of Tree Pose still has us tickled pink.

3. This 3-year-old who knows how to get down to hip hop

We will probably never be able to dance as well as this little fella already does, but that doesn't mean we can't feel super impressed and cheered by his moves.

4. This bunny with an important message for you

Yup, that pretty much sums it up.

5. This, arguably the best version ever of Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Sure, the song's been covered approximately one gazillion times. But Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwoʻole's sweet, heartfelt rendition never fails to bring a tear to our eyes (in a good way).
