It can be hard to be positive when you look at the news. Brexit, Trump, rail prices, house prices, climate change, homelessness, politics… it’s a pretty overwhelming landscape at the moment.
It’s important to keep up with what’s going on at the world. But taking some time to look at the positives can be a big boost.

So if you needed an excuse to go out and perform a random act of kindness, here it is – you never know whose day you’re going to change.
