Through this Pandemic I have struggled with the News – I love to watch the morning news, but feel overwhelmed from the whole focus on Covid19 (and some personal opinions I don’t care for from the anchors) I want the FACTS! Not what everyone on the news channel thinks about what is happening, I don;t really care about their opinion, I want the NEWS. And we all know that news channels strive for the most viewers and will talk about what the audience wants to hear, let me clarify the Majority of the audience. If you are not part of that Majority then, you;ll hear a whole bunch of crap you don’t want to hear or agree with!
so I stopped watching the news in the morning, I had to stop! not only because every segment they reported on was very much falsified but also because it was so doom and gloom. Yes, I know we are in a Pandemic and this is awful, it truly is. However, there are some good things happening, there are! For instance; what about the people that have recovered from Covid19 or all the people helping and donating $, food, etc. and our country coming together to help others (yes this is happening in some parts of the country) 🙂 There is good out there, lets share that too!
Anyways, back to the Facts! I want the facts remember?! For the facts I went to the CDC website, these are up to date facts about symptoms, testing, traveling, how to stay healthy and keep others healthy, etc. – so much reliable information. These are the facts! They have a dedicated page to Covid19/Coronavirus Disease 2019 with a TON of helpful information!
One area I found really helpful is that they have this whole section about our daily life and a specific link on “Stress and Coping”.
I hope you found this helpful – in a world of news overload it feels good to go to the facts and get the info I want.
Take care and stay healthy! Blessings, Christy Jo
