Are the News Pushing You Toward Depression?
A lot of different things can trigger depression. For example, if you are constantly bombarded with negative news, it can make you feel like your life is hopeless and that there's nothing you can do to improve your situation. But this is not true! Though the news may make it seem like things are worse than they are, there are always ways to make yourself happier and healthier, even in the face of adversity.
If you feel depressed after reading about the terrible things happening in the world, try to remember that this is only one side of the story. The media is not always accurate; they often exaggerate or fabricate stories just for a good headline or soundbite. You don't have to believe everything you hear—not if it makes you feel like giving up!
PS. I stopped watching the mainstream news over two years ago. The best choice ever!
