After the Covid19 Pandemic, there is now the mental health pandemic.
It has been building for some years.
As a journalist since 1996, and a news addict since my early years, I can say with certainty.
We are bombarded with more bad news now than ever before in history.
“I wanted a newspaper to pump out good news to the world, to boost the mental health, hope and happiness of people everywhere.”The Editor
With 24.7 news and social media, we are saturated with it. Every minute. Every day.
It’s having a devastating effect on our minds and mental health.
But it’s not all bad news.
This is why I set up the The Post in 2016 – because it’s not all bad news.
I wanted a newspaper to pump out good news to the world, to boost the mental health, hope and happiness of people everywhere.
The hidden truth is – there is far more good news going on than bad.
We just don’t hear about it as much.
And constantly hearing bad news will have a detrimental effect on our mental health.
As a newspaper, we are passionate to promote all that is good in people and the world. There is always an negative and positive slant on everything. We will focus on the positive.

Because it’s not all bad news.
This is what good news does for you…
1 Releases endorphins. (Naturally occurring neurochemicals that make you feel good). Bad news incidentally gives the opposite. Who wants to feel miserable? Life is to be enjoyed.
2 Boosts health. (Your immune system is reinforced)
3 Reduces stress. (Hearing bad news raises stress hormone cortisol but good news reduces it. Incidentally so does laughing, patting your dog, breathing, wild salmon, dark chocolate and extra-virgin olive oil!)
4 Makes you more positive and happy. (Brain experts now know that we can change our brains to become a more positive person. Brain neuroplasticity can help you in tremendous ways in terms of reaching a healthier and more positive mindset by re-wiring)
5 Boosts your mental well-being. (Feeling miserable can be called by thinking too many bad news thoughts. Good news can have the opposite effect)
6 Can help you live longer. (Thinking positive thoughts of good news is simply a healthier way to live)
7 Wins you friends. (Who wants to be around a person just full of bad news!)
