I feel like all we do is react these days. We are bombarded from the moment we get up with information/opinions and we just respond. We don’t process. We give our knee jerk reactions via social media or texts, and I’m not sure the human brain works most efficiently that way. We react with fear or anger, because that’s what kept us safe in our primal days, but those reactions doesn’t serve nearly the same purpose in 2020.Source: Disconnected — Brandon’s Journal
I’m no longer on social media, but I still get a stream of news via RSS and email. At least with those I have some measure of control, and can choose to skip stuff that I don’t want to read, or filter out the excess.
One thing that I should definitely stop doing is to read news first thing in the morning or last thing at night. That’s just not good for me.
