I start my day at my computer sipping coffee and reading emails. I get and and all news from Facebook. I never watch or read the news.
I miss the Today Show sometimes but find myself a happier person for not being inundated with all the awfulness of the world every morning.
It's been this was for about 2 1/2 years now. I remember a big news event with a theater shooting and just crying about it as I held Arianna. Shortly after there was the Boston Marathon incident. I personally knew someone running so I was so afraid. That was what sealed the deal for me though. I just can't let media control my emotions and start my day off poorly over something that has little impact on my own life.
I choose happiness. This also means I am choosing to be ignorant of the things happening in our world. It's a trade I am willing to take.
Tell me, do you choose not to watch or read the news like me? How does it impact your day and mood?
If you do watch and read the news, why do you? Do you feel it brings negativity to your life?
