A weekly digest of happy links to make you smile and feel good.

Five happy links was a 2020 project, active from March 2020 to December 2020.


Started in March 2020 by a couple who were struggling to focus and stay positive during the lockdown. To take their minds away from the gloom and focus on something happier, they initially created a spreadsheet with uplifting stories. The spreadsheet evolved into a website — Five Happy Links.

What is Five Happy Links?

A curated weekly list of five happy links and things, to make you smile and feel good. Featuring articles, podcasts, campaigns, products, videos, recipes, books, playlists, illustrations, and more, all from people with one thing in common — to share something happy.

A little dose of uplifting content to digest and move on with your day. It'll boost your wellbeing and leave you feeling positive. It's the good things in small amounts that count.

The news isn't all bad. Let's start to share the happiness, and celebrate the good things.
