Rolf Dobelli is the author of ‘Stop Reading the News: A Manifesto for a Happier, Calmer and Wiser Life’. As a recovering news junkie, he found that once he’d got over his initial worry that he was missing something, he was able to be calmer and take better decisions. Rolf argues that news is to the brain as sugar is to the body: something that’s bad for us but highly addictive. So, how did he find out about the big events of the past year? He says it’s not that ignorance is bliss, but about finding trusted and less biased sources of information.
