Lately, we consume a lot of negative content that eats away at our positive thinking, emotions and resources. Limit your exposure to the newsgroups and make it a habit to check the news in the evening outside of work hours. Allocate yourself 15-20 minutes a day, so that the news feed does not consume you for hours.
