The news hasn't been good recently, and it seems every day there is more. And every day, it feels bigger.
And because we see it, every time we pick up the phone, watch TV or get on the computer, this news can become a little overwhelming.
There are a few simple things you can do to give yourself control over negative news.
Create a schedule for yourself away from news.
Commit to daily activity.
Reach out to your support network of family and friends.
At the end of the day, you control how much news you take in.
And while it's important to be aware of what's going on in the world, too much focus on bad news doesn't help your financial strategy or your health.
Remember, you're in it for the long-term, and you can take control over the news.
