‘I do not take a single newspaper, nor read one a month, and I feel myself infinitely happier for it.’
I avoid anything negative that I can help. This is fundamental in living a good life. The news is the worlds negativity condensed in one place. I avoid it like the plague. I actually attribute doing this to a lot of positivity in my life.
Now it’s not because I don’t care about my fellow man. It’s just that I believe I can offer more by using the time I do have concentrating on the positive actions I can take. This will help more people out then me sitting around watching the news. What can I actually influence is where my time and energy should be spent.
The news makes it seem as though its keeping you up to date on current affairs but are you? Is everything that goes on bad. Is this really the current status of the world. The news can make it seem like the world is a scary place. Find out for yourself. When I went travelling on my own I was sharing a dorm with 7 other people at times. Most are like me and you. Respectful, wanting to have a good time.
Fear will stop you in many forms of life. You probably have enough fears you need to overcome without adding more. Every time you injest the material thats on the news. It adds doses of fear to your mind. Thoughts that make you worried about things that haven’t and never will happen to you directly. Do you really want that on your mind?
You might also believe your going to miss out on some important piece of knowledge. I doubt it. Your always going to miss out in some way or another. You can’t know everything. Don’t fear that. If it’s that important then you will hear about it. I assure you.
If there’s something you wish to know more about in the world use a variety of sources. You’ll get more accurate knowledge this way. Why would you want your thoughts to be dominated by negativity. This will directly effect your reality. Subscribe to positive news and feel more empowered. Have faith and trust the world more.
Try it for 30 days. Avoid the news. See life in a better light.
