About us

Negative, sensational and fake news spread faster than positive news.

We’re here to change that.

About us

BrightSide Magazine is more than a magazine.

BrightSide Magazine is founded and created by two young and motivated people, Luuk and Martijn from the Netherlands. We always try to keep a positive attitude, but 2020 was a tough year for us and many others. One of the main reasons was the mostly negative and polarizing news. We craved some positivity.

We strongly believe that humans are good. We also believe that focusing on the good, creates more good. As Deepak Chopra said, “What you pay attention to, grows. If your attention is attracted to negative situations and emotions, then they will grow in your awareness.”

To spread this message to as many people as possible, we created an Instagram page with good news and stories. As it started to grow, so did our ideas on having an impact beyond Instagram. Diving deeper into the stories and events. Building the most positive community to bring people together. Helping our members improve their happiness, with tips, questions and habits from experts and our own experience.

A new idea was born: BrightSide Magazine. And this is just the beginning.
