News Fasting

Posted in Ramblings by sabotosh

Inspired by Tim Ferris, I started a news fast about a month ago in order to create more time in my day for living. If you are like me (a news addict) I highly recommend starting this fast to help wean yourself of a 24 hour (digital, and cable) news cycle where most of the information is low or no value. Only after sneaking a few minutes on Drudgereport.com on the 6 day or so did I start to get perspective that all the news was essentially unchanged from the previous week. My fast continues this week with a 2 week vacation in Spain – with no internet.

[UPDATE 8/22/2019]
This was before smartphones, good luck today.
