No news is good news
It may have been King James 1 of England who first said this quote or it may have been somebody else. Whoever it was, l agree and l say that as a former news junkie.
I was a voracious reader of newspapers, magazines and always watched the daily news on television. I was especially interested in politics; now it leaves me cold.
I made the conscious decision to switch it all off. 24 hour news cycle, on line papers, fake news – don’t look at any of it and feel so much better for it. That’s not to say that l don’t know what’s going on, l do in a vague way and that’s enough for me now. It’s surprising how many people tell me they’ve done the same thing.
Now l get busy living my life, trying to be a productive member of my local community and let all the screaming headlines go by without a second glance.
What about you?
