Don’t Worry, Be Happier! Activities That Will Raise the Ends of Your Mouth

Great food and a little bit of alcohol can leave someone feeling happy, but Hawaii offers a number of other activities that will leave you feeling fulfilled and content.  Depending on your lifestyle, there are quite a few roads to happiness.


Paradise Watersports

If working out is your thing, then Paradise Watersports may be a great way to get some exercise while possibly seeing some animals in their natural habitats.

The activity company offers fun attractions such as a 5 in 1 Deluxe Turtle Snorkeling Tour.  With free pick-ups and drop-offs, this three-hour lineup of fun features heading out onto a boat equipped with a water slide, trampoline, and diving opportunities from the second floor.

There are kayaks and stand up paddle boards for those seeking a more rigorous workout.

And if you want a more cathartic experience, consider snorkeling under the sea where you may experience sightings of cute sea turtles, which should bring a smile under your mask and snorkel.

Cat Cafe MOFF

Feline lovers will find Cat Cafe MOFF hard to resist.

This is not an ordinary cafe, nor is it an ordinary cat cafe; rather, the venue represents a haven for cats designed to cultivate a harmonious and empathic relationship between animals and humans.

The resident cats are given the best care via in-house veterinarians so they may bring joy to those who spend time with them.  Cat Cafe MOFF actively supports animal welfare organizations in Hawaii through donations and fundraising efforts, and is also a center for education about responsible pet ownership, understanding challenges faced by cats, and exploring ways to enhance their lives.

With one location on the second floor of the International Market Place, and another soon to open on the street level of Ala Moana Center, there will be more ways to deepen the understanding of cats, advocating the notion that better care for our pets may lead to a more compassionate society.

Cat Cafe MOFF
2330 Kalākaua Ave. International Market Place 2F
Hours: 10am – 8pm daily
Phone: (808) 399-6647


Spend some time doing something you enjoy on International Day of Happiness.  Whether it be athletic activities, relaxation or beautification treatments, indulgent shopping excursions, or therapeutic engagements with animals, do something good for yourself!
