Plug into your inner news source
Do you notice that every mainstream news source (television, radio, newspaper, online news sources), ALL have the same talking points and news items each day?
It can be really hard to avoid getting swept up in the latest news story, even if you don't read/watch mainstream news! It pops up on your social media feed, your phone and your computer constantly.
On the one hand it's good to be informed. On the other, our collective emotions are being triggered and directed daily.
Something I recommend is plug into your inner news source before you plug into external news sources. That is:
In the morning when you wake up, BEFORE you reach for your phone and start checking emails/social media/news take a minute or so to close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, and maybe set an intention for your day or say a short affirmation.
One of my favourites is: "I am filled with love, I am surrounded by love,
I am protected by love, I am guided by love."
You will still be exposed to external sources of news all day, BUT a clear inner space will help you to respond in as clear a way as possible.
It's also good to do this last thing at night after you put your device down, so that you aren't taking the day's news cycle into sleep time with you (which not only affects your sleep, but influences your morning mood).
When I do this, I feel so much better, clearer, focused, productive, energised, inspired, etc
Sometimes I fall into a pattern of not doing it, and wow. I feel irritated, frustrated, disillusioned and so on.
It's a small thing to remember to do, but it makes a huge difference to your day, to your mental and emotional health, and to your attitude about life and the world.
