For prevention – the number two idea is a very simple one. I do prescribe this to every single patient I have received. It’s something I know to be true, and that is to turn off the news. Disconnect yourself from the news media. First of all, the media is not true. It’s not real. Second of all, it’s not positive.
Your body responds to positive thoughts and emotions. If you watch the news, your body is not responding in a positive way. It is not healthy. It is the media’s opinion of reality. It is not a reflection of how God sees the world. Remember that the news has to invoke fear. If they invoke fear, they have your attention and they have control over you. Fear is a source of dis-ease. It’s the biggest fuel. So, what is the purpose of watching the news, or listening to the media the media?
Let me tell you the way it works. If something were to happen, somebody will tell you and they can’t wait to tell you. I had a person come up to me and say, “Well, how do you know what’s going on?” And, I said, “Because people like you tell me.” My view of the media and the news is quite simple. I learned this from a master teacher. I just need to know enough to know who to pray for. That is it. So, an easy solution for wellness is turn off the news.
