Are you a news addict? Are you one of those people who read their newspaper or check the news sites almost before your morning coffee? Try a news blackout for a few days. Avoid watching news on television or getting your fix online or with your morning newspaper. Instead...

  • read some essays by famous authors on off-news topics 
  • pick up a good book
  • write in a journal

You’ll be amazed at how much time you’ll save and, if anything catastrophic happens, your friends will tell you!

This is something I already do, @teribrown. Being bombarded every day with negativity is not good for us. Shut it down for a day. Believe me, it'll be there when you turn the TV back on. Thanks for sharing this important tip with the tribe!
