Time to take a news vacation

Today I’d like to talk a little bit about the news.  I am first going to digress a little bit.  I am of the boomer generation.  When I grew up in the 50’s, television was new.  Yes, that’s true.  Our family had a black and white TV first, and then a color TV.  We had only a handful of stations to choose from.  Back to the stone age, I am afraid.  Local, state, and world news was presented to the public twice a day, one the 6 0’clock news or the 10 o’clock news.  News commentators, such as Walter Cronkite and Tom Brokow were highly respected journalists that presented the facts of the issue or the situation.   Never could you guess what their political affiliation or bias was.

Fast forward to today.  We are inundated with news 24/7.  It is on our televisions, laptops, ipads, and phones.  News outlets either lean right or left with the station personalities clearly stating their opinions or the directive of their managers.  The truth is, alas, somewhere in-between.  The rhetoric spewed is one that is sensationalistic, divisive, and intended to be emotionally charged.  The result are audiences that become upset and stay so continuously.

This is quite stressful and can be detrimental to our health.  We have very little control over what happens in the world; we do have control over what happens in our lives as well as how we respond to things.  

Perhaps it’s time to take a break from the news and not get so wrapped up in the daily soap opera that is thrown at us.  I would bet that if you took a news vacation news for a week, you’d feel a heck of a lot better physically and mentally more positive.  So, how about it, consider a news vacation in your health program periodically. 

Until next time,

Stay well; stay healthy; stay focused.
