Diary 168

Wednesday, September 2nd

My doctor sent out a news letter, which said, in part, that with all the bad news we read about the ‘president’, racism, riots, covid, the economy, and so on we are effectively walking into a public mental health crisis.

This matches what I’ve been noticing for a while; events may be bad, but the media are also bad for our health.

So I’ve decided to pay less attention to the ghastliness that gets shouted at us every day, and focus instead on that which is good, beautiful, and inspiring.  No. I’m not running away. I’m taking care of me.
