A vital reminder in a scary news cycle

Today’s tip: You don’t need to be the news messenger for the people in your life.

When you check in with friends and family in times of chaos, “it’s natural to want to share anything new and earth-shattering with folks on the other end of the line,” writes Kara Cutruzzula in her guide to curbing your doomscrolling. “But be mindful that other people might not want to or be able to absorb every last tick-tock of the news.” And when you rebuff the instinct to share updates in every conversation, you may find that you have an easier time stepping away from the news when you need a break of your own.
