So, I have been trying out a thing called a NEGATIVITY DIET. (It has nothing to do with food, btw.) This diet is just quitting a few things that could potentially F up your day and replacing them with things that will uplift your day.
Here are the things you give up:
GOSSIP (even listening to it),
Angry Social Media Rants,
Negative people (as much as is possible),
Violent media (movies, video games, etc.)
The first few things are pretty easily accepted by most people -- they aren't easy to do, but it is easy to see why giving up gossip, complaining, and such is a good idea.
Then there are two that are hard to avoid -- Social Media negativity and News negativity. These two are quite linked, actuall.
What's that you say?
"But if I miss the news I won't be informed!"
Why that is not true:
Mark Twain put it best, "If you don't read the newspaper, you're uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you're misinformed."
