How to Stay Informed Without Getting Warped
Check in with yourself. Do the news stories and content you consume make you feel good or bad? Do you feel your worldview changing for the worse?
Then, honestly, it's time to change your consumption habits.
The world will keep turning even though you've consumed one less piece of bad news. (Or even 12 fewer pieces of bad news.)
Meditate before you read news or check in on the friends who you know share the 'tough stuff.' (BTW, you have full permission to UNFOLLOW or UNFRIEND people who do so.)
And when you're done? Ask yourself, 'What do I want to believe about the world?' Affirm THAT! Not "people suck," or "the world's gone to pot," or whatever else.
I want YOU to have a positive worldview for the change it makes in your life.
