Why news is injurious to your health ?

A 🧵 on this wonderful eye opening book by Rolf Dobelli

News is to the mind with sugar is to the body:

News makes us addictive with no serious benefits.

What’s happening across the world is sometimes not of any value to you as you have zero control on that.
Banish news from you life:

Instead of news, read editorial or long articles

If a news is worth it, it will reach you anyhow.

Get a magazine subscription instead of daily newspapers 🗞
A 30 days plan:

Avoid news for 30 days continuously and experience the benefits

News is totally Irrelevant and of no use. News organizations want you to believe they are giving you competitive advantage whereas they are selling you something and spoiling your mental health.
News is waste of time:

Avoiding 90 minutes of daily news will give you 1 month extra to your year.

News obscures the big picture
News is toxic:

Bad news is perceived as more relevant than good news. Negative information has twice the impact that positive information does.

It’s called ‘negativity bias’.

Consuming news reduce quality of life, you will be more stressed, susceptible to diseases and lost.
It can change prospective:

Continuously watching a specific type of news or a agenda, can influence your decision making and thought process.

News can rewire your brain and can kill your creativity.

In the world of 24x7 news, sometimes news is manufactured to stay relevant.
Finally - Avoid news and focus more on editorial and magazines for knowing the world affairs and keeping yourself up to date.

It will give you better prospective, analyzed content and most importantly peace of mind.
Thread for the benefit of Twitter folks.

Why avoiding news is more than ever needed now.

Just finished reading #ThyPsychologyOfMoney by @morganhousel

Here's my interpretation from those 20 chapters of wisdom. Hope it helps you 😊

A #Thread
Chapter # 1

What we think about money and finance is mostly reflection of our own personal experience with it.

It is mostly driven by emotions than real facts.

They are based on our personal narratives which has or hasn't worked for us in the past.
Chapter # 2

There is some role of luck and risk in people's success or failures.

Several outcomes in life are guided more by risk and luck than our individual efforts.

Focus less on individuals and more on broad patterns.

Nothing is as good or as bad as it seems.
