Over the last 3 years, I've seriously cut back on my consumption of political news and I can really, really recommend it.
There is so much stuff going on in politics that is, admittedly, horribly infuriating, but that at the same time we can't even begin to have any meaningful influence over.
By cutting back on consuming political news I have mostly saved myself a lot of frustration and emotional energy, but I've also saved a ton of time.
I try to spend that time by either being more productive and learning new skills, or by doing something truly relaxing.
This approach has seriously improved my quality of life, which I'm really happy about.
I thoroughly recommend it!
