Bad News

Being exposed to bad news every day is not good for your health.

In an experiment in London several thousand commuters stopped watching, listening,reading and paying attention to the news for three months.

The results were startling with a large majority saying that they felt better and less stressed.

Interestingly many decided to carry on with the no news approach and also observed that they were doing other things with the time hitherto spent on absorbing the daily bulletins of bad news.

Conduct your own experiment.

Watch no TV news, read no newspapers, listen to no news programs.

Cut news out of your life for just a month.

Don't worry others will tell you if something really unpleasant happens.

Try allocating that time to something new, something that you never had time for.

Start today!
