Tips for managing news consumption

  • Avoid excessively checking social media and the news
  • Allow yourself to check one reliable source once a day if you wish to stay up to date, but try not to exceed this
  • If you wish to stay up to date, identify reliable sources of information (such as the WHO and medical sources) rather than relying purely on social media or news media
    Engage yourself in other activities such as work, connecting with friends/family or hobbies
  • Try moving key social media and news apps (that are particularly prone to sensationalism) away from the home-screen of your phone or disabling them for a while
  • Turn off notifications from key apps
