Every day we are bombarded with television, radio, internet and newspaper headlines and stories that draw our attention to bad news. We hear and read about natural disasters, economic uncertainty, wars and other tragedies that serve to trigger distress and worry in many people.
Did you know that 53.4% of the news on television alone depicts violence, conflict and suffering? The worse the report, the more likely it is to be the lead story because humans are naturally attracted to bad news.
