I know more people are taking in less news. They say that it is simply too depressing, too toxic and generally “a downer” in this economy. I am a news junkie and I still like to stay on top of events.
But I have found that it has helped to cut back. For me it is the morning routine that has changed. For now, the radio is off. This was hard in the beginningl(extroverts like noise) but I have come to enjoy the peaceful side of morning. There is plenty of time to get my fix of news throughout the rest of the day. Are you scaling back your intake? How?
