The more you think about peace, the easier it is to feel peaceful. At times it can be challenging to even find something peaceful to think about, especially if you have just watched the news. There is much death and destruction in the world that you are exposed to with disturbing images from TV news and the web. In fact, there are dark and disturbing images from fiction, too, shown in movies, TV shows and computer gaming. 

You have the right to protect yourself from unnecessary violence whenever possible. Give yourself permission to say NO to brutal movies, shows and games. Allow yourself to get your world news from a trusted source that does not feel the need to overwhelm your senses with sensational images and video clips.

You get to choose. You can still stay informed in a more peaceful way. Be aware of what you let into your mind and your heart. Give yourself a chance to be peaceful.
