20 Under-Reported Good News Stories

Reid Kerr-Keller

“Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results.”

– Willie Nelson

Ol’ Willie Nelson had a point: the power of positive thinking isn’t just a nice thing to say, it’s a genuine scientific phenomenon.

That being said, staying positive isn’t always easy. Especially when one of the quickest ways to ruin your day is to turn on the news.

While we can’t ignore the terrible things that seem to constantly happen, nor fault anyone for covering these sad stories, there are great things going on in the world that you just don’t get to hear about. There are so many people out there working every day to make the world a better place in the realms of science, politics, education, medicine, and technology. Even with a 24-hour news cycle, we rarely get to hear about these people, innovations, and cultural advancements. There’s so much out there in the world to be proud of and grateful for!

No matter who you are, we could all use a little more balance in our lives. If the news gives you the blues, consider this your antidote! In this video, we’ve gathered 20 feel-good news stories that you won’t hear about anywhere else.
