Is the main stream media really serving us?
Are constant reports of ebola or terrorism really doing us any good?
Are you safer for having listened to the broadcasts or read the same thing in every newspaper?
What is the real effect of all this negativity on our collective psyche?
Our minds constantly feed on whatever information we supply it with, and the more fearful, negative, depressing information we see, read and hear, the more our mind will generate fear-based, depressing thoughts.
The worse we feel, the more we feed on those same sources that only re-enforce the same depressing mood.
How do we break the cycle?
Limit the amount of negative news you take in each day, and look for more and more sources of positive, uplifting news. Balance what you focus on so you won’t become so obsessive with all the tragedy in the world.
