Living, Laughing & Loving… while in debt.
I want to point out something I saw today while “staying in the know” at work.
This is a screenshot of a “Woman’s Day” article titled “10 Weird Tricks That Make You More Productive.” The 5th “weird trick” was to “Read Less News,” because it could stress you out or “make your brain tired.”
I literally had to take a screen shot to prove that I’m not making this up. They even add to not read the news outside of work either, so that you are able to save your full brain usage for your job.
So, getting this straight, “Woman’s Day” suggests that we stop keeping up on current events and being productive, contributing, and free-thinking minds within society, so that we may save our brain power for our daily jobs. I really hope some intern getting paid pennies wrote this article as a joke. The concept of this is not only insulting to one’s intelligence, but incredibly dangerous to society. How is someone supposed to vote, or form independent opinions, if we avoid any semi-stressful material regarding current events? I was expecting the next “Weird Trick” to be about boycotting independent blog sites, where they can’t control what media is fed to you. I didn’t realize I woke up this morning in communist China.
