The CFDA's 2015 'Fashion Icon' award-winner, and Happy singer Pharrell Williams has published a new article for Wattpad – detailing his seven keys to happiness to mark the International Day of Happiness.

Wattpad, an online platform for readers and writers, tapped the multi-talented cultural icon to share his unique insight in celebration of the United Nations (UN) March 20 International Day of Happiness

"Everyone can find their own route to happiness, understanding and truth," stated Pharrell. "I'm intrigued by the idea of participating in a conversation with people all over the world about what happiness means to them." 

Here's Pharrell's inspiring guide to happiness in full:

1. Gratitude: It's not possible to experience constant euphoria, but if you're grateful, you can find happiness in everything.

2. Education: Education and exposure teach us that there are limitless possibilities. It will be a #HappyDay when every child is in school.

3. Connectivity: Before you get to happiness, you have to get to a place where people can connect. We have to find a connective tissue if we are going to be one body.

4. Music: It's easy to forget how the power of music can prove how similar we are as human beings by taking us all to a common place...It can make us all smile – and few things on this earth are as beautiful.

5. Giving: We have to give back in some way and doing our part to save the Earth is a beautiful gift to humanity.

6. Creativity: Stay loyal to your creativity because it's a gift. Look at the world in a new way, see what's missing and create it.

7. Equality: Equality in love visualized. It is acceptance. It is love. It is strength.
