Make Someone Happy (and find your own happiness along the way) is a beautiful book by Emily Coxhead.
The author Emily went through a low patch a few years ago and decided to do something about it. So in 2015 she launched The Happy Newspaper to celebrate all that is good in the world. The newspaper itself is a 32 page publication organised chronologically, with news articles arranged month by month. Not only is the paper packed with only positive stories from across the globe, it also has an entire section dedicated to our Everyday Heroes. These are ordinary people, groups or organisations who YOU have nominated to feature in the paper because they add a little bit of sunshine to the world (or your world).

Not only that, they also feature articles based around a theme (previous issues include; empathy, loneliness, unity, opportunity) as well as gathering content on lifestyle, showbiz, travel, food and more!
It brought her lots of happiness, hope and love and others said they also felt the same.
Emily’s philosophy is simply to help people. She suggests doing tiny things like smiling, helping someone with heavy luggage or asking a homeless person if they want some food.
When we are kind we feel happy and this inspiring journal will help you to do just that: every page focuses on the bright spots we overlook every day and will encourage you to pass these simple joys on to others. With infectious charm and delightful illustrations, Make Someone Happy will help you to discover your true sense of happiness by brightening the world around you:
– Find a good news story from this week and share it
– Fill a box with treats and positive notes and send it to a good friend
– Leave an encouraging note for a stranger to find
– Think of the kindest thing someone has done for you – how can you return the favour?
Make Someone Happy is a reminder that together we can make the world a kinder, happier place, one good deed at a time.
