News fatigue is real
It's easier than ever to keep up with what's happening everywhere "right now", and that has had a bad effect on our overall health. It has caused news fatigue.
One way to prevent it is to reduce the frequency at which we read the news (including "not really news" like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, etc.), but that's not very easy when the devices we use daily are built to keep us engaged, almost mindlessly.
An alternative is to develop a routine where you set aside a time in the day to read the news once per day, and that's it.
Focusd helps with that, and it's only $10 / year.
How does Focusd help?
By receiving a single email with "the news" per day, you are able to be more focused and productive throughout the day, as you'll not need to check the "real time news".
Try it out. You'll see it's a great way to beat news fatigue.
