One of the best tips I received was via the book The Secret which I read in my late 40’s. If you want to be happier turn off the mainstream media.
It was a life-changing moment, of course! TV is addictive and controlling with its negative messages – after all bad news sells, good news does not! (Apparently).
From that moment on I have rarely, if ever watched the news and I rarely watch TV, unless it’s an excruciatingly funny programme, a stunning drama or an exquisitely beautiful wildlife programme. I do not watch anything that makes me sad or feel bad only programmes that makes me happy and positive. My life, from that moment on, started to transform for the better.
