10 Reasons You Should Stop Watching The News

stop watching newsDuring the past 12 months, there has been a huge uptick in the number of people watching news both on television and on the internet. One could feasibly say that it’s because of the unique presidential election in the United States.

But as the news watching has increased, I’ve noticed an increase in the stress levels of people on social media.

People who have been friends for a long time are suddenly alienated. People are increasingly worrying about more and more things they see on news outlets.

I’m here to tell you, for your own sanity and general health and your relationships to stop watching the news.

Here are 10 legitimate reasons you should avoid your daily bath in news programming.

    “News IS Unhealthy!”

    I like being a selective sifter of what I need to know.

    Good stuff, Anita!

      I like that term, “selective sifter”.

    News never reports anything negative. And like Larry Hochman, I am selective in what I NEED to know.

    And the news drains your energy. That’s why I never watch it before going to bed at night.

    You’re so right about this, Anita. The news is “bad news” and it’s a shame what it’s doing to people who are or used to be friends. It’s best to focus on your goals and when watching tv, find something entertaining to enjoy. 🙂

      It’s so easy to lose track of what’s important.
