These aren’t typical headlines to wake up to, but the creator of a new global site launching today believes your day will be a better one if it starts with positive news.
Happy Ali has been created to combat the serious psychological effects negative news is having on people worldwide. For many, the simple act of reading the news causes anxiety, stress and negatively affects their outlook on life.

With pillars ranging from wellness, science, environment, lifestyle, food and travel, readers can connect with topics that they love and interact with a like-minded community on digital and social platforms.
