A lot of people choose not to watch or read the news because they don’t like how negative it tends to be. The danger in this is that you may miss something that could actually improve your life or your well being. You might miss news about preventable illnesses or safety concerns in your home.
The best approach is to keep up on the news without investing too heavily into it. Don’t let the dramatic reports tear you down, instead; take what you can from it and keep going.
