‘Hopecore’ is a new trend that has taken over TikTok and is gradually influencing young people's mindsets. This trend helps Gen Z deal with the challenges of living in a world where they are constantly exposed to negative news and information.

The term "snowflake generation" is commonly used to refer to Generation Z, which can be derogatory. However, young people generally have a heightened level of sensitivity, which is often considered a positive trait.

We live in an information age where bad news is rampant. Scandals, environmental disasters, violence and hate speech are just a few examples. However, good news is not as easily accessible, and even if it is found, it doesn't seem to make up for the weight of the bad news. This can lead to mental health issues that are often addressed in therapy sessions, which can cost a lot of money.

To ensure the effectiveness of therapy, attending sessions regularly, preferably once a week, is recommended. It's worth noting that younger generations are more open about seeking therapy and are not ashamed to do so. However, a new trend called ‘hopecore’ is emerging to help people combat their fear of the future by promoting positivity and optimism, especially among young people.

Hopecore: Hope for Generation Z

According to a recent report by Gallup Institute, young people, especially those belonging to Gen Z in the West, are among the least satisfied groups in society. This is largely due to the influx of negative information, which has led Zoomers to be overwhelmed with bad emotions and caused mental fatigue among them.

One emerging solution to the problem is 'hopecore', a lifestyle approach that can assist in achieving balance. This approach is being increasingly adopted by young people who prioritise positivity, building and nurturing relationships with loved ones and family, taking care of their health, spending time outdoors, connecting with nature, cherishing fond memories, and living in the present moment.

Gen Z is fighting anxiety. Young people do not want to be passive

'Hopecore' is a form of rebellion against what Hungarian-American scientist and anthropologist George Gerbner called the 'culture of fear'. This culture refers to the pervasive negativity that surrounds us in our daily lives.

Gen Z is actively resisting this culture by prioritizing their mental health, balancing work and personal life, and adopting an attitude of gratitude for even the smallest pleasures in life.
