In the last edition of the Living Sanely newsletter, we wrote about avoiding information that would not help you make better decisions. Sometimes you just need to turn off the news to feel better. But you can also turn your attention to the most positive stories. Attitude Media publishes a Positive News email. This morning that email featured two stories. The first was about a 41 year old man going out for his regular afternoon jog who happened to hear a terrible scream. He responded, saving a 15 year old girl from an abductor, and possibly saving her life.
The second story we featured was about advances in medical technology that made it possible for a man to live, and completely recover, after going 96 minutes without a pulse, thanks to the intervention of complete strangers.
The media is inundated with stories of tragedy; you'll feel much better, and saner, if you take a few minutes to focus on some of the genuinely amazing good news.
You can find these inspiring stories and others at Positive News.
