Follow the news
I hear so many people say that they don’t watch the news because it’s too depressing. While that can be true, it’s still important to keep up to date on what’s going on.
Take today for example. New Parliamentary session in Canada, new deal in the US. Big big day. All of which will have lasting impacts on us as individuals. We need to keep informed and seek a better understanding of the decisions that affect us.
Those of us in debt know that burying our head in the sand won’t do much good. In fact, it does more harm in the end. It’s important to keep your eyes and ears open – wether it’s national news or local happenings, the more connected we are to the world in which we live, the better. And it’s not all depressing. And despite what they say, what you don’t know can hurt you. Best be informed. At least the news is real reality (or more real than the staged reality shows of late). Just think of it as the real housewives of real life, or top chef of the political kind. It’s all how you look at a thing. Drama, yes but important too.
