The Happy Hero

Solitaire Townsend

The Happy Hero reveals the secret of enjoying a better life and sets out the principles of how to feel good by doing good. Sounds simple, but where do you start? Every day we are bombarded with fear and negativity from the media and have been trained out of happiness by these stories. There is a simple solution: stop worrying about the future and start making it better. Whether it’s donating blood, only eating meat at the weekend, buying vintage/pre-loved clothes or picking up litter in your street. Luckily, many of the changes we need to make to build a better world, we want to do anyway and optimism is the only mindset that can change our world for the better. New research shows that trying to make a difference, even in the smallest ways, can extend your life, improve your relationships and even help you recover from a cold…because, it turns out, saving the world is good for you. So Superheroes, what are you waiting for… ?
