Turn the News Off: Ten Point Plan for a News Sabbatical Starting Today

Reading Time: 6 minutesI’m going to let you in on a little secret.
Now is an exceptionally good time to turn the news off. 
Take more than a break. Take a sabbatical. 
It’s ok to power down, unplug, and refocus on your life without the input. 
Seriously, if something is happening you really need to know, like an asteroid hurling towards earth, someone will tell you. 

At this point, the news is an anxiety-inducing adrenaline pumping experience. Chances are pretty high if you unplug you’ll actually go through a detox. However, that is the very reason to do it. You and your body probably need a reset.
