Take a mental break and read some uplifting news

Smile (KSAT 2020)

SAN ANTONIO – 2020 has been a dark year for most of us. We’ve struggled to stay connected and a study this summer showed that nearly a third of Americans reported anxiety and depression due to the pandemic.

But we wanted to focus on the bright spots and highlight the GOOD things that have happened to KSAT viewers so we asked on our social media platforms for you to share your positive news with us.

My wife and I successfully planted a vegetable garden. We are zucchini, jalapeños, tomatoes, green beans, and bell peppers. My YouTube channel saw a spike in views during the pandemic. I anticipate hitting one million views by end of year.

Learned to cut my hair (clippers), getting better and better each time at least in my opinion. It’s a big deal to me. Only other human being to ever cut my hair has been my mom but could not risk her health during lockdown.
