The first week of basic self-control is the worst week. Not checking the news requires special discipline. At first you will experience anxiety and anxiety, you expect something terrible to happen in the world at any moment.
You will feel restless, worried and unprepared for the next catastrophe and you feel left out. You have been rejected and even socially isolated and You are constantly prompted to take a sneak peek at one of your favorite news sites. Resist. Stick to your goal.
Live thirty days without news. Tell yourself, “I will be free in thirty days to return to my former life.” But these thirty days I will go to the bottom of the line and endure. Why thirty days? Because during this time you will begin to experience the first waves of inner peace and tranquility. You will find that you have more time and focus to better understand the world.
In thirty days you will reach a turning point:
you will realize that despite the restraint of the news you have not lost any relevant information and you will not lose anything in the future.
If a really important event happens, you will find out very soon – from the specialist press, from your friends, family, or someone you are chatting with. When meeting your friends, ask them if anything important has happened in the world. This question is a good start to an ideal conversation, and the answer you will normally get is, “No, nothing significant happened.” In thirty days you will decide whether or not you want to return to a life tainted with your former news.
If so and you do not want to change your mind later, you should go back to the starting point and try those first 30 hard days again. But most of the people who have followed my advice to this day live in a world without news, because the advantages of this innovative method far outweigh its disadvantages and disadvantages.
If you’ve been through this for thirty days, for example, if you’ve started before you started reading this book – then congratulations! You have revived yourself for ninety minutes a day. Together, these minutes make up one working day a week. Even with a downstream estimate, this can be more than a month a year. Now your year has twelve months, not eleven months, as before.
What do you want to do with these newly discovered times?
How is reading a book? What do you think about reading long articles in newspapers and magazines, especially those written by real experts?
How about a great online training course? This will help you to understand the underlying mechanisms of the world. Go deeper, not wider. Deal with concepts that really relate to or overlap with your scope of ability.
If you do not know what the circle of ability is, do not worry: in Section 9 we will take a closer look. But for now, it’s enough to know that your range of ability is your ideal position and your firm foothold, the range at which your ability is above average (or you barely put it above average). And your skill is the circle of your ability. What do you think about thinking?

Addiction to following the news has become so pervasive that it is not easy to get rid of it. So you should read this book carefully and follow its solutions to witness a calmer life.
Do not follow the news in another part of the book, we read:
What makes a good life? In other words, how do you live to be able to look at it one day and believe that it was “successful” and “good”? Unless you can answer this basic question, your life will be a relentless copier of crises. Without a clear philosophy, there is a danger that your life will be wasted.
It does not matter what philosophy you choose. The key is to think and choose correctly. I have described my perception of this in my book The Art of Living Well. Your goals may be similar to mine or they may be completely different, it does not matter. The important thing is to have goals and a clear vision of them.
If we look at the last 2,500 years – that is, since philosophers first began writing their ideas – we see a significant point of overlap between philosophers.
“Inner peace” has almost always been considered a key component of a successful life, although in ancient times the concept was often expressed in terms such as “stillness”, “inwardness”, “inner strength”, “inner purity” or “peace of mind”. Peace of mind is due in part to the absence of toxic emotions. The sooner you can remove toxic emotions such as jealousy, anger, and self-pity from your emotional set, the better.
