If you cannot stop watching the news...here are some healthy alternatives.
There is such thing as an information diet.
Although we at Grit focus on lifestyle change, the idea still makes it through.
Think of what you're putting into your mind in a similar fashion to what you are putting into your mouth.
Your mind is the most fertile soil on earth.
Whatever you put there, grows.
Choose what you are putting in your mind.
This isn't a post against one news source vs another.
They're all garbage.
Some people are in love with one garbage over another.
They'll even defend their garbage.
But it's still garbage.
Think of what you are putting in your mind and get the good stuff in there.
Is it cheap drama/junk food ... or is it quality thoughts, positivity, enlightening perspectives, questions, healthy skepticism and curiosity?
Here is a list of movies that are worthy of the watch.
