Good News, Kindness, Positive, Uplifting


Some time ago I wrote an article about wanting to hear and read the good news instead of an endless stream of articles focussing on tragedy, war, fatal accidents, murder and child abuse. . Since then I have become aware of a number of websites which focus on the positive events happening in the world. I can now read more of the good news and I love how it makes me feel.

Studies have shown people are influenced by what they read and hear. Negativity makes people fearful and drains their energy. One study found people who were exposed to six or more hours of media daily were likely to suffer worse stress symptoms than the people who actually witnessed a hostage situation, bombing or similar traumatic event.

I did a search on the words ‘good news’ and a number of results came up. One of the sites, The Good News Network provides a positive quote of the day and good news in history as well as current positive news stories. There are also testimonials about how reading the good news has helped people feel more positive about life. One person said she had been suffering panic attacks from reading and hearing about all the negative events that occur. Reading positive news was beneficial to her.

I must admit I got misty eyed reading a story about a lady who used to feed the stray dogs and cats in her neighbourhood. When she died some of the dogs sat outside the funeral home and followed the coffin.

There are video clips for some articles. I smiled when I saw a video about the reaction of commuters at a railway station when the song, ‘Do Re Mi’ from Sound of Music was played over the loud speakers. Two people started dancing and gradually more joined in. Those watching were amazed. I bet they went off to work in a good mood.

In the United States there is a woman who makes hundreds of Easter baskets each year and gives them to children in her area. Her goal is to make a thousand baskets one year. A few items are donated to her but she purchases most of them from her own money. She does it because seeing the smile on the faces of the recipients makes her happy.

We will hear about police who injure someone while carrying out an arrest or shoot a suspect. How often do we hear stories of police finding a place for a homeless person to stay, buying a car seat for a family in financial need or helping in other ways?

In mainstream news these kind acts are rarely reported. It is uplifting to be made aware of some of the acts of kindness which occur all over the world. I think it helps people see they can make a difference themselves in the lives of others.

I have subscribed to a couple of good news sites so I can get a daily ‘fix’ of positive news easily. I am not ignoring the negative side of life but I feel greater energy and more inspired when I read about positive events and people who are kind.
