Things you notice when you quit the news

Having quit TV myself more than a decade ago, or raher never really started it (I had live TV for about two years), I can only underwrite the following points that http://www.raptitude.com/2016/12/five-things-you-notice-when-you-quit-the-news/ talks about (I redacted the ‘Five’ because its better not to associate with those blog-list-posts):

  1. You feel better
  2. You were never actually accomplishing anything by watching the news
  3. Most current-events-related conversations are just people talking out of their asses
  4. There are much better ways to “be informed”
  5. “Being concerned” makes us feel like we’re doing something when we’re not

I really can’t add anything to it, it’s great someone wrote this down.
