Be reassured: we don’t see the world through a magical lens. In fact, we see through an unfiltered lens, which has enabled us to process the following question: why do mainstream media tend to broadcast rather depressing news?
Some media exploit the mechanism of “negativity bias”. It aims at catching an audience’s attention by causing stress and anxiety.
Given that we are bombarded with information, the accumulation of negative news inevitably causes stress and depressing feelings.
Every single day, positive events occur around the world and deserve equal attention on our part. It is scientifically proven that reading positive information reduces stress and lifts one’s mood. A soothing moment one can only welcome in our hectic daily life.
