Sometimes You Need To Walk Away From The News

posted by Paul James -

The 24 hour news cycle can be brutal on our mental health.

We’re sure you know that if you’re depressed, turning on or reading the news is not a good idea. Experts have taken reporters to task for glamorizing suicide, among other things. Walking away from news, no matter the source, is a good idea every once in a while.

Here’s how to manage or completely shut out the need you’re exposed to:

  • From everything including social media.
  • Don’t stream or watch news on TV.
  • Unfollow any news sources on social media and unfollow friends that make it a habit of sharing “breaking news” all the time.
  • Use filter tools if you really want to be on social media. Tools like Tweet Deck, Social Fixer, and Sadblock will help.
