Less News Might Reduce Stress

Limit the News You Watch

When was the last time you watched a news cast that left you feeling energized and motivated? I am almost certain that has not happened lately. At any given time of the day the news report is filled with more negatives than positives. Imagine filling your mind all day with that kind of negative energy. It could leave you feeling less energized, and even depressed. While it is important to stay informed watching less news might reduce your stress level.

Personal, I limit myself to half-an-hour of news most days, if at all. I usually tune in to “World News Tonight with David Muir. This half-an-hour segment keeps me informed on the things that I need to know. By the way this is not an endorsement of ABC. You can tune in to your favorite news channel. The point I am trying to make is keep informed without drowning yourself in all the negative news of the day.

Shut out the Negatives

If you want to make it in life there are some lessons that you need to learn and things you need to avoid. One of the most important things is having confidence in yourself, and the courage to pursue your dreams, even if you have naysayers. If you spend time worrying about people not believing in you, chances are you won’t make it. If you find yourself obsessing with thoughts that people don’t like you, you won’t make it. Your time should be spent productively. By spending valuable time focusing on negativity, you are setting yourself up for failure. Focus your energy on what matters and you will find yourself a step closer to achieving success.

A World in Turmoil

Prayers for Afghanistan

My heart goes out to the people of Afghanistan, especially the women and children. I just don’t understand how this happened. The US was in the country for 20 years. Biden claimed they trained over 300 thousand Afghan soldiers and gave them state of the art millitary equipment, yet the moment they begin moving out the country collapsed. Is it that the Afghan soldiers are so afraid of the Talibans that they gave up without any form of resistance? Aren’t they all now at the mercy of the Talibans?

Daily Motivation

Engage in Positive Thinking

You become what you think, so if you engage in only negative thinking, you will draw negative energy and attract negative things in your life. Nothing is beyond the reach of the man determined to rise above the odds stacked against him. The people who believes they can attain great height are more likely to see their dreams become a reality. Likewise if you daily bemoan the fact that you are poor, unlucky, and has no hope of of things getting better. You will remain where you are wallowing in self-pity. No matter how beaten down you feel, tell yourself it will get better. Know that where you are is not your final destination. There is a wise quote, which says, “Be careful what you set your heart upon because it will surely be yours.” Set your heart on the things that will elevate you. Dream big and aim high.

COVID-19

Do Your Part to Stop the Spread

How many of you thought we would have put COVID-19 behind us by now or at least have things under control. Instead of things getting back to normal, we seem to be taking a step in the wrong direction. This is a disease that is spread from person to person. If each person do his or her part in trying to stop the spread, it will. Get vaccinated, wear a mask. Let’s all do our part.
