Why I Stopped Reading the News
News is all about spreading stories that sell, mostly focusing on negativity, fear, and drama.
I think it was Tim Ferriss who said he hasn’t read the news in years. It’s a waste of time, and if it matters, he will hear about it from someone.
I decided to follow this approach.
I turned off all notifications on my cellphone. I am glad I did. I’m less triggered by news, and if there’s something important, someone talks about it.
