The news today can be very bleak. With politics, the economy, war, crime, etc., etc. it is easy to get bogged down in a negative mind set that NOTHING good is going on in the world. So where do you go to get a more balanced view?
In 1997 Geri Weis-Corbley began the Good News Network. Its mission "is to provide a "Daily Dose of News to Enthuse." The Good News Network is a clearinghouse for the gathering and dissemination of positive news stories from around the globe. Daily stories will confirm what we already believe — that good news itself is not in short supply; the advertising of it is."
Good news is good for you. It can help alleviate depression, It helps inspire success, happiness and peace. It can influence your health for the better by lessening stress.
The Good News Network works towards this by "expressing a philosophy. We believe in striving for cooperation, sustainability, generosity, and unity — and trying in our lives to love. We will share analysis of current affairs and public opinion that reflect this philosophy of optimism, because many, including well-known columnists, are optimistic.
We do not want to polarize with debate but unify upon common ground."
They don't push any political or religious views. They don't preach about what YOU should be doing. They just report the good news that is out there; a lot of the news the the main stream media won't publish because they don't think good news sells.
So if you want good news on business, civics, earth, family life, health, inspiration and recreation, visit the Good News Network. You can also sign up for their forums, newsletter and RSS feed.
A little good news never hurt anybody.
