The dose makes the poison.
Stop reading about international news. Stay hyper-local and plug into your community. Humans aren’t wired to process that a surfer was attacked by a shark in Indonesia or even the minute by minute account of the soccer kids saved from the cave in Thailand. It’s a compelling story, and you should read about it if you are interested…but wait a couple of weeks and then read about it in one sitting. Don’t follow it minute by minute on CNN.
Mute the daily updates about things you can’t control.
