Here’s a new thing to get frothy over: a new study shows that women who read depressing news stories get much more worked up about it, and they stay stressed out about it for much longer than their male counterparts. In fact, reading stuff that stresses you out might spill into and negatively impact other areas in your life, not to mention linger in your brain for longer, thus putting you at greater risk for PTSD. IN OTHER WORDS, YOU SHOULD PROBABLY GO OUTSIDE AND TAKE A WALK.
From the Jezebel article “Is Constantly Reading Bad News Ruining Your Life?“
I 100% have this problem. I get so upset by bad news.
(I love Jezebel.)
