It isn’t always easy to stay positive in today’s society. We are surrounded by an unprecedented amount of information and whilst we are all aware of fake news are we aware of negative news? So much of what we subconsciously take in each day is doom and gloom.
Personally, I made a decision many years ago to protect myself from the daily onslaught of negativity by rarely watching the news or reading newspapers. My choice of media is The Week magazine which is a round-up of the news for the week in a format where I can choose, and be in control, of what I am absorbing.
My favourite part of The Week is a section entitled “It wasn’t all bad”. This is a short paragraph of 3 uplifting stories from the week just gone. Each time I read this I feel hope and inspiration. There is so much to be grateful for and proud of in our world. Let’s make sure that we celebrate the good news to balance out the bad!
