Political polarization and rating-driven media are creating anxiety, stress, depression. How to protect our mental health and democracy from constant manipulations by media and politicians?

Lately, I made the mistake of watching too much “news” before going to bed, ended up tossing and turning and did not get a good night’s sleep.

The media and the politicians are getting their viewership up by creating anxiety, partisanship and animosity. The more they drum up their one-sided propaganda, the more we are led to believe how wrong the other party is. The results:

– We as a country are stuck in the mud, deeper and deeper into divisiveness.

– We continue on the destructive path of viewing “us” versus “them”.

– The more we watch this rating-driven, drama packed media distortion, the more we feel anxious, depressed, hopeless, helpless.

But our affiliation with a political party is not the same as rooting for your hometown football team.

For the love of our country, for the love of our freedom and democracy, we are all Americans. We all want our country to move forward. We are all in it together.

And for our own mental health, it is up to each of us to turn off the TV remote, to put an end to being constantly manipulated toward a downward spiral.

It is up to each of us to engage in critical thinking about what is good for our country, what is right, what is wrong, and when enough is enough.

Don’t let anyone demonize anyone.

So unless there is a world-shattering event, I’m going to try to turn off watching any news after 7:30pm or even earlier, to protect my sleep hygiene and mental tranquility.

Hey, you can do the same for the love of our country, and a good night’s sleep. Thank you.
