If something really bad happens, you’ll hear about it. No sense looking for it. But that’s just what we do when we read the news on our phones, check for updates frequently and read in depth about tragic events. There’s a slippery slope between being informed about current events and being consumed by them. Bad news seems to be all around us. But there’s a relatively easy way to make it ‘disappear’.

These steps can help avoid those negative, skewed thoughts that can lead to depression. Creating a better sense of positive self-esteem starts with actively choosing what information you permit to flow into your sacred day.
