I stopped watching the tv news shows many months ago. I’d become increasingly bothered by the constant barrage of bad news, gory images and shocking stories that the broadcasters threw at me each morning. Surely there are good things going on in the world that can be shared! Why do those good news stories not merit our attention? The network programming decisions and bias perplexed me. There’s so much deceit and despair in the world and I know this, but I don’t need to invite it into my living room. I quickly noticed after I’d begun my news-fast, that my morning routine suddenly felt gentler somehow, and a lot more positive too. I went searching for the good news and found plenty of it. For whatever reason though, mainstream media prefers to focus on and glorify the awful and the shocking. Turn off your tv news. You’ll find that the quality of your day is so very much better for it.
