It’s Like Eating a Doughnut First Thing In The Morning: Positive
Have you ever had a doughnut before anything else? When I was a kid I’m positive that I could’ve done that every day of the week, but not anymore.
Last week, in the middle of a conversation with someone about how important is to start your day off on a positive note – it hit me. It’s similar to starting the day with eating doughnuts. You feel like it’s a good thing because the sugar is giving you an instant burst of energy. Then as the sugar begins to coat your stomach you almost feel nauseous. The initial gratification wears off and your head begins to feel almost disconnected from your body.
“Why did I eat that doughnut?”
This is the same way that you should feel when watching the morning news. In a recent study it was discovered that the people that watch the morning news are 27% more likely to have a bad day. Wow! If that doesn’t make you question whether or not to turn on the TV first thing in the morning, I’m not sure what would.
Notice how I said that “you should feel.” The reason that you may NOT feel that way is because you’ve always done that.
When you come into a room the first thing that you do is turn on the TV or you turn on the radio.
Do you hear any positive information? Think about that when you listen.
I have challenge for you. Go one week without turning on the news. You may want to argue with me.
“Well, I need to know what the weather is going to be.” How many times have you heard the traffic report at the last minute? You’ve inadvertently driven into the teeth of a major slowdown. And, there’s nothing there. There’s no slowdown.
“Well, I need to check out the weather forecast.” Don’t make your decisions based on someone’s prediction. I’ve done that where there was an 80% chance of rain. We’ve altered our plans, but no rain. I’ve done that when there was a 15% chance of rain. We didn’t take umbrellas or raincoats and it poured.
“I only have on the news for some white noise.” Is that the best thing that you can come up with? Find a better source of white noise.
Take my challenge and let me know what you’ve discovered.
