Question: The way things are in the world freaks me out! I feel anxious and afraid of what might happen. What can I do?
Answer: Don’t Read the Newspaper
This is very simple. Don’t read the newspapers for two weeks and see if you don’t feel better.
Then read the newspaper for a week, and at the end of that week you will find you feel worse. Then make up your mind whether or not you ought to pay any attention to the newspapers.
This is proposed as a simple experiment. It isn’t even an expensive experiment — as a matter of fact, it is cheaper not to buy newspapers than to buy them.
This is a simple action, but a very effective one which can markedly change your outlook on life. Give it a shot.
