Want a quick tip on improving your day-to-day outlook?
A way to stay positive as you deal the with stress and pressures of life?
Stop watching the news. Stop reading the news. Stop anything-ing the news.
The news sucks; more than ever now that we’ve got plenty of 24 hour channels dedicated to it.
They’ve got viewership targets to meet, so every small thing is made out to be the end of the world.
And that’s bad for two reasons:
- It’s draining, negative, and it’s impacting your view of life whether you know it or not, and
- It’s making little of the things that actually are negative and should be getting our attention.
I’ve cut my ties with the news for a couple of years now. And sure I don’t know the in’s and out’s of everything any more, but I know about all the things I should. Things like famine, death, and war.
And while thinking about those is negative, too, it’s negative with a cause. It’s important to think and know about these things.
But forgive me for not being concerned that some unknown airline is struggling or that health care spending in the US is trending upwards.
Knowing that stuff isn’t important, and just gives me a negative outlook. And I don’t need any help being negative.
So look kids, don’t do the new’s, m’kay? The news is bad.
