Now I have turned reading into a priority over consuming news or watching shows, I'm noticing a difference.
I am getting calmer. I had no idea that I was that stressed etc. but now I am reading I notice the difference.
I think that the daily influx of tv changes something in the brain and reading is the way back from it, even now I am re-reading a book that's very thrilling.
I am still failing at times, at just consuming media instead of reading a book, but I am getting better at it.
