News Fast

I’m contemplating going on a news fast for awhile. The news is so depressing these days–fiscal meltdowns, environmental disasters–basically death and mayhem everywhere. It’s bringing me down and putting me in an unnecessarily bad mood.

Still, I feel a little hesitant to do this, because I worry that it makes me clueless and potentially even a bad citizen. Especially when I’m teaching, I feel obligated to have a certain level of awareness of what is going on in the world.

I guess the question is, when does protecting your psyche cross the line and become sticking your head in the sand, trying to escape the sometimes-ugly realities of life?
