1. wean yourself away from "traditional" news that highlight negativity, war, poverty, crime; those are not the kind of reality you want, are they?
2. to break a habit successfully, replace with a better habit; nature abhors a vacuum.
3. feed your mind well. you can start by checking these out--
a. happy news (and sign up to be a Citizen Journalist. i just did! : >)
b. peace journalism (watch out for what traditional journalists are feeding you and demand for better ways of reporting!)
we are growing more conscious of what we feed our bodies to stay healthy; we should even be more vigilant about what we feed our minds.
thoughts are things; what we keep thinking about, manifests.
