I try to limit the amount of bad news I take in everyday. It’s a bad habit I’ve eliminated in the last six months. It’s had a positive effect on me.
Too much bad news is not good for us because it brings us down. How much do you need to read about murders, robberies, and crimes?
I’ve stopped watching the local news. Half the time it’s about what’s bad about the city and the country.
However when the tragedy is huge, it’s hard to not read or watch it. Like when the huge earthquake hit Japan or 9/11. I followed every breaking moment.
