I haven't watched the news in the past few years. Yup, you read it right.
I am the only one to feel anxiety after watching the news? Story after story of abductions, murders, torture. Browse CNN.com and you are inundated with the worst conceivable stories out there. I finally had to decide to turn off the news channel, and stop visiting the websites.
It isn't that I want to pretend that horrible things don't happen. It is just that I don't want to be emotionally beaten down by the daily dozen stories featuring deplorable human behavior, stories that make you ill to your stomach. When you get to the point where you question if humanity has any good left, it is time to turn it all off.
Enjoy a new book. Take a hot bath. Give your heart and mind a break from the atrocities that are featured non stop on our 24 hr news channels. It has done me immeasurable good for spirit and mind to just let it all go.
