Our Health - "Caution: Negative News and Our Health"

Date: Feb 16, 2023 - Feb 16, 2023

Location: Midland Cultural Centre, Midland ON

Save the date for the next "Our Health" event, "Caution: Negative News and Our Health", on Thursday February 16, 2023 at 7:30 pm.
 
The relentless barrage of negative news, which has dramatically increased in recent years, has an impact on our thinking, behavior and emotions. Trying to strike a balance between being informed by news media and not becoming overwhelmed is a daily challenge. Whether exposed actively or unintentionally, a constant consumption of negative news can elevate a person’s stress level and trigger symptoms like anxiety, anger, discouragement and even sleeping disorders.
 
Our panel of experts from the fields of mental health care, communications and media will talk about how headlines and reports can affect our mental and physical health. They will share insight and tips on the ways we can choose to balance and filter what we see, hear and read on TV, radio, in print, on social media and other online platforms. We will be reminded there is still lots of positive and uplifting news available; there will be suggestions on how to access it; and we will explore ways to achieve a positive and optimistic outlook on life.
 
“CAUTION: Negative News and Our Health” will be held in-person at the Midland Cultural Centre with free registration and will also be broadcast on Rogers TV throughout Simcoe County and online at 7:30 pm on Thursday, February 16, 2023. Email your advance questions to: mcc_ourhealth@outlook.com
