Reading Stress Full news kills your mental health

The researchers looked at how people were best able to manage feelings of anxiety and depression at the height of the pandemic

Finding that one of the most effective methods was to take breaks from the barrage of bad news.

"The best predictor for having lower anxiety and depressive symptoms," said lead study author Dr. Joaquim Radua, a psychiatrist in Barcelona, was to "avoid watching too much news."

Others note that there's only so much negative news coverage a person can take before it affects their mental health.

Without putting the brakes from the reading news on it yourself, you can just keep going and keep reading and become more stressed.

The study found that those who avoided "too much stressful news" had fewer symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Time outdoors, getting exercise and drinking enough water were also found to be linked with lower levels of stress, anxiety and feelings of depression.
