  • Lifestyle advice: With titles like “Good Health”, “Amazing Wellness” and “In the Moment”, PressReader connects you with online lifestyle magazines to create the life you always dream of. Get advice on how to be happier, how to stop worrying, what supplements to take for better brain health or how to start a new yoga routine.
  • Taking up a new hobby: Learning a new skill increases happiness. PressReader has a wealth of online magazines like “Creative Knitting” and “Simply Sewing” to inspire the maker in you. Does learning to code excite you more than learning to sew? PressReader also has 240 magazines about computers and technology to get you started. You’ll be speaking HTML in no time!
