Three steps on how to stay positive despite all the negativity brought by the media

We are all a part of a vast media bubble which is sometimes really hard to escape because even if you don’t, e.g., watch TV or if you don’t use social media that much, the information, especially those negative ones, will visit you as well. I prepared three simple steps for dealing with everyday negativity brought by the media.

1. Go in one ear and out the other

Pretend like you didn’t hear it or at least make positive information out of it if it’s possible. It should be because everything’s possible. The impossible takes longer as Dan Brown would say.

2. Don’t take it too seriously

Usually, we feel stressed out by the negative news we heard that we start acting like it’s the end of the world. No, it’s not the end of the world, just another negative news you shouldn’t take so seriously. Instead, don’t forget to breathe. Life goes on.

3. Meditate

Yes, meditate! Because it’s such a simple but powerful tool that can help you relax and concentrate on the beauty of the present moment.

Meditation is to be aware of every thought and of every feeling, never to say it is right or wrong, but just to watch it and move with it. In that watching, you begin to understand the whole movement of thought and feeling. And out of this awareness comes silence.

Jiddu Krishnamurti

Sometimes we can’t escape from the bubble, but as you can see, you can make your life positive even being inside of it, and in the end, it’s not so bad to be a part of it as long as you are making it comfortable for yourself and others. For now, start with the three simple steps. 😉
