Go on A News Fast By Robin Sharma

Go On a News Fast

Negative news sells. In Our Country more people will choose to watch the criminal trial of a celebrity rather than the biography of truly human being.
A newspaper with a headline revealing the latest tragedywill sell more copies than one announcing the latest scientific breakthrough. The real problem is
that it is easy to get addicted to reading and watching negative news. I knows so many people who begin their day by reading less-than- uplifting newspaper
stories and who end it by catching up on the latest crime,accidents and scandals on the late-night news.
I am not against newspaper or television by any stretch of the imagination. As a matterof fact , I find excellent information in many newspapers and have learnt much from the intelligent TV programmes i have watched over the years.My point is simply this: become more selective in the way you read your newspaper and in the wayyou watch your television. Before you start reading the Morning paper. have a purpose in mind. use it as an information tool to serve yu and to make you wisher rather than as an excuse to help you and to make you wiser rather than as an excuse to help you pass time.One ofthe best way to wean yourself from the “news addiction” that so many of us suffer from is to go on a seven-day news fast. Vow not to read even one negative story in the newspaper or watch even one negative news report on television for the next week.You will notice two things . Firest, you will not really miss out on much information. You will still hear about the most impotant stories of the day from the convesations that circulate around your office and through your encounters at home.
Second , you will feel much peaceful and serene.Besides, you will find that the seven-day news fast offers yet another benefit: more time to do the things that will truly improve the quality of your life.
