The news. Is. Everywhere. And man, is it exhausting. OK, we get it, the world is on fire in some places, and it’s important to read up on the goings-on of our surroundings. But for one thing, not everything is all doom and gloom—the media tends to just exacerbate the negative, and that tends to make things a feel thousand times worse. For another, a lot of what’s reported is fluff. Remember when this TV anchor lost his cool because he was supposed to seriously report on what Kylie Jenner named her rabbit? Yeah—that’s how we felt, too.

The news is constantly changing, anyway, so it’s not like it’ll make a difference whether you’re always looking at it or not. Best to sign off every now and again to keep your head from exploding.

Like with many things in life, the news is only as bad as you make it. We live in a world in which we have far more outlets to get said news from; whether or not we choose well-balanced outlets is up to us. If the news is starting to feel to be too much, you could always go to some other source not only to check facts, but to relieve yourself of the weight more negative news networks are putting on you.

Remember: knowledge is power. Signing off from the news is denying yourself the power to remain both informed and enlightened. Just be smart, and stay safe.
