Are You Ready To See The World As It Truly Is?
So how does bad news affect us and do you want to be protected from it? An American Psychological Association survey has determined that here in North America watching or listening to the news has a downside. A good majority of people asked, over 50%, have stated that they feel that news is so negative that it causes anxiety and stress even to the point of losing sleep. Notwithstanding these figures still, 10% check in every hour to find out what is happening in the world of news. And people, 20%, also tune in to their social media feeds regularly which also contain the current news updates and features regardless whether they desire to see them or not. They are still inadvertently exposed.
Most people feel that it is a social obligation of sorts to keep up to date of what’s happening for some unknown reason. It is not a far stretch to realize that monitoring news can cause much anxiety and increased stress levels. However, the manner in which people can access information along with the unabashed form the news takes may not be very beneficial towards our health both physical and mental.
One of the pertinent factures is how the news is being reported today. With the onset of smartphones and other modern recording devices news is capture as is in real time and not censored prior to it being placed on the airwaves or internet. This can often lead to very stunning scenes that can and does shock individuals. The visual or auditory detail of such reports can stun and disturb even the most stable of us which can lead to a plethora of negative emotional issues, like intense fear and worry, and even undesirable behaviors in certain cases.
How Does Bad News Affect Us Spiritually And Mentally?
How does bad news affect us spiritually and mentally? How does the world creep into your spiritual life? Does it affect your sleep or relaxation? Are you beginning to focus more on the negativity pulling you away from your true nature, spirit? There are many negative effects of news that can radically shift your spiritual perspective of the world and the people in it.
The psychological effects of television news are depressing many people today. The effects of mass media on society have really become twofold in nature. It can enhance our knowledge of current affairs but also send us into a tailspin as well if we let it. Sometimes the news gives me anxiety and I need to refocus my internal energy on re-balancing. Grounding is so very important. I don’t watch the news any more than just to get the basics to keep current. I am getting to the point that I agree that too much news is bad for you.
Recent Listener Requests About How Does Bad News Affect Us Spiritually
What actually stimulated this article and show is that recently I have had some listener’s requests about the world’s state of affairs lately. These are related to the shift in weather patterns causing the major disasters as well as those manmade disasters.

These are a few of the recent world events / top news stories we will discuss.
My opinion of the top 5 stories in the news this week:-
- Sexual Harassment – Harvey Weinstein
- Las Vegas Shootings – Stephen Paddock
- Natural Disasters
- Global Unrest & Political Disturbances (Trump, Catalonia)
I think we can agree that the some of the news effects on society are enough to put most people over the edge if they focus on them too much. It can really remove you from your spiritual journey if they become fears and prejudices. Some people may even go as far as thinking god is dead.
