I've gotta stop reading the news at the beginning of my work day, it just puts me in a state of despair where I don't want to bother getting anything done.

I have https://whatthefuckjusthappenedtoday.com/ bookmarked and tend to check it at the end of the workday.

OTOH, I do engage with NPR and sometimes Twitter in the morning, but I keep myself busy enough that I'm distracted.

So, how's the family doing?

I find it to be the best 7-10 bullet point summary of the state of the dumpster file. Rarely any commentary, always links back to original sources.

OK the daily headline is commentary, but you get my gist.

oh god yes. after nuking my day from orbit more days than I cared to count, I eventually made a twitter reading list of "people i care about who rarely post about current events" and stopped reading FB in the morning at all, and it's helped. (I never actually read news intentionally at all, i seem to absorb enough from other venues.)

Every weekday morning, I have my tea and a cookie while I read my news aggregators. The cookie doesn't make it any less of a 24/7 tire fire, but it helps remind me to relax my jaw and shoulders.

*sigh* yes...or maybe not so much with the NPR on the drive in?
