They say health is wealth, and that makes sense, right? Your body and your mind, those are investments and the more you pay attention to what you’re putting into them, the more control you have of what you get out of it. Pay attention to how much media you’re consuming. Really, it’s a major, major stressor for so many of us. Ask yourself when you put on the TV and consume news media, how much of that news media consumption right, that you’re taking in, is making you feel good in your body and how much of it is making you feel anxious and nervous? It just so happens that news media can be a useful way to staying up to date, yes. But it’s also targeted to sell sensationalism, especially in news coverage. So in other words, news media is made to sell headlines and fear because we’re so attuned and glued to our television. And we can easily become stressed when we’re over consuming news media. So make sure you’re taking breaks. Turn off your TV. Sit down. Come back to yourself. Come back to your body. Journal, breathe, yoga, meditation. Whatever it is that makes you feel good, relaxes your nervous system, do more of that. Remember, the body can’t tell the difference between a crappy diet or consumption of fear based news media. The mechanisms the same, it increases inflammation, increases anxiety in the body. So just like good investing, good health is all about consistency, and the most satisfying gains come with patience, time and routine.
