Thanks darkandstormy, the advice is welcome and appreciated I do worry that I'm overdoing it, because the information I'm getting isn't having any positive impact on my life, so now I try to read into things that amaze and inspire me and open my mind to new possibilities, but I still feel like I need to keep my finger on the pulse with breaking news and alternative opinion but it really is dark sometimes.
I would almost feel guilty if I didn't do it, like I'm being ignorant, or naive. Some of the evidence is damning and I find it hard to put it aside.
Did you throw yourself into positive pursuits, or make a conscious effort to cut back on time spent looking at this kin of information? Any tips you could give on finding a happy balance would be great. I certainly don't want to put my mental health in jeopardy, thinking and learning are my greatest joys and I'd hate to lose that, the mind is a powerful tool and I definitely don't want it working against me!
