Choose your news

In an interview I did recently I was asked the question, “Why do you believe we need to “choose our news”?

My response…

Have you heard the saying that the five people you spend the most time with influence the way you behave?

Then, why would it be any different if you’re spending all day watching TV news? You’re giving them your time and awareness, and they’re influencing you with repetitive words and images.

I spent decades learning to control my awareness—and I’m pretty good at it. But if I were to watch the news all day, I can guarantee you it would start to influence the way I think because they broadcast repetitive words and images that take us to the fear areas of the mind.

My recommendation is to stop watching news on TV. When I want information, I go to the source, such as the World Health Organization, Center for Disease Control and Prevention, or my local state government. It’s important to get information from authorities on the subject who have your best interest at heart.

Choose your news wisely. If you don’t, it can lead your awareness on a downward spiral of fear and anxiety.

Stay strong. Stay Safe. Stay Home.
