Quote of the day:
The more wonderful the means of communication, the more trivial, tawdry, or depressing its contents seemed to be. -Arthur C. Clarke
Each day we are bombarded with bad news. No matter how hard we try to bypass it (Sometimes I shut myself off from television, apps and or internet news), the news just keep coming. It can be said that the way we consume information has greatly changed, and as such we seem to be beset with an endless array of negativity on a daily basis and in different forms -some of which may or may not impact our emotions wrongly.
It's hard enough dealing with life. And bad news sells obviously. If bad news make you weary sometimes -then it's time to tone down and prioritize the negativity. There a lot of positive things happening around us -which is one of the reasons I started the '3 things to inspire your weekend' theme -to throw light on the good, and focus less on the negative.
In addition, bad news can sometimes be good -events that lead to actions being taken that turn to good news, for example. I guess what I'm trying to say is that we mustn't allow ourselves to get lost in all the negativity, thereby missing out on the positivity of life.
So if you feel overwhelmed, stepping away from social media and T.v can make a huge difference.
