My new boycott....

I don't know about you, but the news has been less than encouraging. The apparent rage (between parties) for the present election is palpable and causing undue stress...for me personally. I've never in my lifetime seen a country so divided...In my opinion, the corrupt media is no different than an antagonistic divorce attorney...but I digress...

I'm turning off the tv, throwing the paper in the recycle bin, and I will stop reading blog posts that touch on the current political election...just to save my sanity....

Last night, I took control of our family evening and put in a movie...a fun, mindless movie..."Christmas with the Kranks", and I intend to watch feel-good movies until we get some sort of normalcy to this country again...any suggestions??

Am I burying my head in the sand? You betcha! And it feels...GREAT!

I don't remember the name of the book - but it was by Dr. Andrew Weil. (I think that's how you spell it). Anyway ... the book was on how to improve one's health, and it had a whole chapter on disengaging from all the negative media and such. Turning off the news can really be a healthy thing to do!!!
Craig and I were pretty actively involved in this whole political process, since our caucuses back in January. But we are getting pretty burned out - there is just so much distortion and lying by EVERYONE ... that it gets a bit depressing. Now all our local candidates have started all their negative campaigning - it's just too much!!!

I also consciously avoid the negative media, especially in regards to the economy - waaay too stressful for me. Head in the sand is sometimes a good plan!
