Going easy on news consumption

Until now I used to watch Twitter accounts of local, national & international news channels, and then throughout the day I would visit other aggregator sites which link me to variety of news articles.

But I notice the most important & actually useful news always have a way to surface and reach me. I don’t have to be constantly tracking various sources for in depth, wide range of news.

So I have decided to reduce the amount of news I consume.

My morning newspaper in local language and our national news channel in the night is enough.

What does focus mean?

It means to ignore or cut down many things, in order to concentrate on a few things.

Sometimes those many things might feel important, but they are not. You already know what is most important to you. You just have to be truthful to yourself.

Rest is just noise.
