Turn Off the News to Reduce Anxiety

Do you watch or read or listen to the news?

Do you feel anxious?

Do you commonly wonder “What if ______ happens?”

Do you hear bad news and allow it to change your mood?

If you’ve answered yes to any of the above, here’s a quick tip to reduce your anxiety level…

TURN OFF THE NEWS‼️

A 2015 study in the scientific journal Psychiatry found, “Increased frequency of viewing newscasts was associated with reported anxiety reflected in uncontrolled fear, physiological hyperarousal, sleeping difficulties, and fearful thoughts.”

To replace your morning news habit, we recommend writing daily affirmations such as “I am safe, healthy, happy and pain-free” or “Something wonderful happens to me today” to set a positive mood for your day ahead.

Only you can control how you feel, so why allow negative news outside of your control to hijack your day? Protect your peace by turning off the news!
