The news is depressing
There have been some interesting conversations about world news in my feng shui class. Many people have decided to go on a "news fast" because watching the news is so depressing. They (maybe we) feel that it brings us down too much, makes us sad, and depletes our energy. I can say that I do agree that the news depresses me. I hate to watch it - there never seems to be anything happy anymore. Yet, I still want to be informed - I want to know what is happening in this world of ours. I think I will stick with my initial idea - read the paper in the morning so I can digest the news over the day. No more TV news for me, except maybe The Daily Show. News with a bit of comedy - that may work!
