To a worm in horseradish, the world is horseradish. Whatever you put your focus on will be your world. So turn off the news. It's all bs anyways. It changes nothing of significance in your life and just makes you angry. Intentionally find something beautiful every day. Look for it until you find it. After time, you will see beauty everywhere. Here's why: The "news" business model (CNN/FOX etc) is %100 dependent on you staying on the screen. To do that, they make every story designed to make you scared or angry. That way you talk (or yell) about it, share it, and go back to it. But, If they told you that "nothing much happened today, you should go outside-get some exercise, and enjoy yourself", you would not be staring at the screen and seeing the commercials. Try it, and you will see you can live better without it. Also, you will see the people you know, that are still stuck on the news, are habituated to their anger the same way a smoker is habituated to cigarettes. This is not you "doing without". This is you giving yourself a gift.
