About World Half Full
More and more people are turning away from the news. In a 2017 survey conducted by the Reuters Institute, around half the respondents (48%) said they avoided news because it had a negative effect on their mood. Is it any wonder? So much of it is polarising, divisive, disruptive, bombastic, antagonistic and SHOUTY! The 24/7 scroll of negativity is corrosive to the soul. It leaves us stressed, anxious, fearful, depressed, disempowered, and often exhausted. WorldHalfFull offers an antidote to this angst. We're here to provide uplift to your newsfeed by offering a respite from the daily grind of doom and gloom. Bookmark WorldHalfFull today and you’ll soon discover that the news isn’t all bad. Or, subscribe to the News. Each time we find a good news story, we’ll send it to you.
