There is no point in looking at the news first thing when I get up in the morning. Unless there is a water main break up the block or some such, it doesn’t change my morning and there is not really anything I can do about it. Better to leave my phone plugged in on the shelf and enjoy breakfast over a book.
  1. @petebrown this is good advice. Especially as news tends to be shocking and alarming…it’s not healthy for your first stimulus of the day to be anxiety inducing. Better to brush teeth, have coffee, get dressed, listen to music, whatever. The grim news will still be there later if you need it
