Have you noticed that the news is positive one week and negative the next about the same topic? Â Sometimes it is about how the reporter spins a particular subject that makes it sound really good or really bad.
We each have the ability to tune out the noise. Â Whether it is not watching the news or taking a break from the internet, sometimes it is just a good idea to tune out the outside noise to realize that we are okay where we are at. Genius, right?
