We are exposed to news everywhere; TV, radio, online through social media, some of which is fake news, and our attention span is less than a goldfish’s. Disaster news is the number one category in the news interest index and there are studies proving that exposure to bad news can cause anxiety, mood disorders and can even be addictive.
The World Health Organization has named depression as the greatest cause of suffering worldwide. In the U.S., 1 out of 5 deals with depression or anxiety. For youth, that number increases to 1 in 3.
On the other hand, good news has been proven to increase our ‘good mood hormones’ and even strengthen our faith in Humanity.
The good news is that 40% of our happiness can be influenced by intentional thoughts and actions, leading to life changing habits. It’s this 40% that The Humanity Post help to impact.
SO WHAT ARE WE TO DO?
Read good news
Just as reading bad news stirs up hormones and sparks neurotransmitters that change mood, so does good news. We can benefit greatly in our personal lives and relationships from exposing ourselves to positive information.
Human-interest stories increase trust and hope in humankind. Stories about improved living and health conditions are uplifting and encouraging. Lastly, no one can dispute the power of laughter; a good, clean, humorous story will leave a smile on your face every time you think back on it.
“We Become What We Think About.”
Make it a habit
