I never watch the news. But all this shit turned me into a news FIEND. 24 hours into self distancing in my home and I was all over Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and every news outlet I could find. Every time I heard something new I would run into the other room to tell my husband. He watches zero news and this was irritating me. How could you not pay attention?? How could you just ignore it?? Truth is, I was jealous of his ability to turn it off. I felt nauseous every time I looked at the news and I knew I wasn’t going to be able to keep this up. So here’s what I’ve implemented now: I turn off my phone when I get in bed. I can’t trust myself to stay off otherwise. I am allowed three big news checkins a day. I take some time to review what’s been going on and see if there have been any changes or updates. Turned off all the extra notifications on my phone. I don’t need 30 alerts from different news outlets telling me the same thing. At night, my husband and I have a news briefing. I tell him all the wild things that I learned during the day. He stays informed, I feel heard. Win-win. Some of these suggestions might help you too! How has your news consumption been? What are you doing to feel safe, calm, and informed? PS. The SITWITHWHIT STORE is live!! You can shop all my courses and worksheets 20% off until Monday with code HEALTOGETHER.
