The power of ignoring mainstream news: Why reading the paper is like eating junk food

See on Scoop.itThings I Grab (Here and There): THgsIGrbHT

How much time do you spend consuming information that you have no intention of taking action on or that you don’t care deeply about?

plerudulier‘s insight:

Circles of Concern are the things that you often waste time and energy worrying about, but that you have little to no control over. Meanwhile, Circles of Control are the things that you can influence in your daily life.

As an example, the vast majority of news stories — war and terrorism, the economy and stock prices, celebrity gossip and political scandal — fall squarely in the Circle of Concern. They can easily soak up your time and energy, but you have virtually no control over those events.

Other examples include getting angry about what someone posted on Facebook, worrying about what other people think about you, or wishing your kids would make better choices (a valid wish, but still outside of your control).
