Today we wanted to share an easy, everyday happiness habit with you. It’s one we practise ourselves, and it’s quick and cheap!

This happiness habit simply involves passing on any good news you come across. As we’re all bombarded with worrying headlines every day, it can be easy to lose sight of good things that are happening. If you share items of positive news, it doesn’t detract from keeping up with the main stories of the day and can be an effective way to balance the bad news with the good, as well as letting others enjoy the benefit, and maintaining your connection with friends and family, too.

Do you make a habit of passing on good news stories to others? If you do, is there anywhere in particular you look for postive news? Do you have another happiness habit to share? We’d love to hear about it in the comments.
