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):
- You feel better
- You were never actually accomplishing anything by watching the news
- Most current-events-related conversations are just people talking out of their asses
- There are much better ways to “be informed”
- “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.
