And The Good News Is

And The Good News Is

Lately the media seems to be full of negative messages – talk of rising petrol prices, high interest rates, the rising cost of food, climate change and the state of the environment  – and you can understand why some may feel despondent about the world.    

The good news is Happyzine – New Zealand's source of purely good news – is offering a complementary news service to warm the hearts and minds of news consumers. 

Happyzine is dedicated to focussing on the brighter side of life.  It is a positive news, monthly electronic magazine with a strong Aotearoa flavour.  Each issue features pieces on the environment, youth, and inspiring New Zealanders.  Happyzine also includes general good news, a mentor section, opinion pieces and more.  For around the price of a good cup of coffee, subscribers receive a monthly burst of inspiration.

"For all that seems to be happening right now, in our economy, and our environment, the one thing we can control is our attitude, the way we look at life.  Happyzine is designed to support people to tackle seemingly insurmountable problems with creativity and good old Kiwi ingenuity.  It's also designed to remind people that life  isn't all bad, everyday wonderful things happen to people world-wide."  Said Charlotte Squire, Managing Editor of Happyzine.  

"Call it 'positive thinking', call it 'escapism' call it what you will, the fact is, sometimes a little good news and hence a shift in attitude is all a person needs to face the world with renewed vigour and zest!" Said Squire.
