Feeling constantly bombarded by news updates and social media? If it’s making your anxiety worse, you’re not alone. On “Life Quakes,” host Patricia Wu and guest psychotherapist Deanna Dellia discuss how to find a healthy balance between staying informed and protecting your mental health.

Set Limits

Choose a specific time of day for news updates, and stick to the limit. Avoid checking news first thing in the morning or right before bed.

Seek Out Positivity

Balance the negativity with news sources that focus on positive stories and acts of kindness.

Take a Break

If news consumption feels overwhelming, it’s okay to step away completely for a while, even if it’s just for a few days.
