Scrolling through the news might lead you to feel a bit down in the dumps.
Today, the world is ending due to global warming. Tomorrow, the world is ending because of another mass murder. In fact (while all of the above is inevitably tragic), you might feel that the news is giving you more doomsday vibes than actual “need-to-know” information.
For many of us, this can totally lead us to spiral. A few thoughts might come to mind… “Why bother?” “What is the point then?” “I feel useless.” Not exactly the positive morning start you envisioned.
And yes, it’s important to know what’s happening in the world. Plus, shutting it all out is nearly impossible. Even if you delete all your news apps, you’re still going to have some negative events blasted at you through other apps and social media. So, what can you do?
Well, let’s counterbalance those negative news blasts with some positive news! It’s time to strike a balance and remind ourselves that there is a lot of good going on around us.
So, without further delay or explanation, here are the top 10 best positive news sites you should follow right now!
