No News is Good News
My name is Angela and I am a newsaholic, in particular a politicsaholic. A political junkie. A consumer of political stories. Primarily via radio and the internet.
As of today, I’m halfway through taking a week off from satellite radio on my daily commute, and this has also been a week of unusual “extra” driving to meetings. Most of the time, I’m listening to a book instead–Playing Big by Tara Mohr thanks to Laura Simms–and I’ll write about that in another post. Sometimes I drive in silence.
With the 2016 election cycle heating up, politics will be ever more tempting in the coming weeks and months, and I’m going to try to remember the difference in the way I feel this week after my driving/listening time. Listening to political news makes me feel powerless and tired and stressed; it also gives me the illusion of doing something to be the change I want to see in the world.
On the other hand, listening to a book leaves me inspired and energized. Wanting to take the microphone.
