Breaking an Addiction to the Negative News Cycle

With so much going on in the world, and access to 24/7 news literally at our fingertips, it’s easy to get sucked into a never-ending news cycle. And while being informed is important, a constant consumption of negativity can be harmful. But there is hope.

Dr. Francie Broghammer, a resident physician at University of California Irvine, stops by A Closer Look™ to discuss the addictive nature of video games and other electronics, and how what we allow to influence us is crucial to our well-being. During their conversation, Sheila and Dr. Broghammer take a call from a listener named Jack, who broke his addiction to TV news with just a few simple words from his parish priest.
