KICK YOUR AD­DIC­TION: BREAK­ING NEWS

Fast Company - - Secrets Of The Most Productive People - —Stephanie Vozza

MOD­ER­ATE

Head­lines are im­por­tant, es­pe­cially these days, but too much news con­sump­tion can be dis­tract­ing (and dis­may­ing). Limit your all­day in­take to two sources: a trusted news-gath­er­ing or­ga­ni­za­tion and a feed re­lated to your in­dus­try, says Blake Snow, au­thor of Log Off: How to Stay Con­nected Af­ter Dis­con­nect­ing.

AG­GRES­SIVE

Get­ting your news on­line can be like drink­ing from a fire hose: It’s an end­less blast that leaves you feel­ing raw. Try sub­scrib­ing to a daily news­pa­per. Yes, a print one. It con­tains a fi­nite amount of in­for­ma­tion, and you can re­cy­cle it. Plus, it’s de­liv­ered right to your doorstep, of­ten be­fore you’ve even had your first sip of cof­fee.

EX­TREME

Get rid of your TV and im­ple­ment a no-screen rule for af­ter-work hours. En­force it fur­ther by turn­ing off your in­ter­net when you get home. “Trust that im­por­tant stuff will make it to you,” says Snow.
