Shannon C from Delta, BC, Canada has the following very useful advice:

“The best advice I can give is two-fold. First be mindful of your sources of new info. Don’t believe everything you hear or read. Fact check against reputable scientific documentation. Second, don’t OD on the news. It’s easy to get sucked into it and let it consume all your thoughts. Check once a day in order to stay informed, then shut the rest off. Move your mental energy onto the things that make you happy. It makes a huge difference with mental health.”

Thank you, Shannon. I completely agree that some news sources are more reliable than others! Hope you and your loved ones are safe!
