Media Exposure During Covid-19 Should Be Intentional, Not Reactive

Let’s face it, we want to stay informed on CoVid-19, but our constant media exposure can be downright stressful - which is an emotion we are trying to control and mitigate at this point. So how do we judge which media we should listen to, how often, and ought we digest it?  Dr. Tracy Thomas, a psychologist and emotional scientist based in California, joins The Mountain Life  to talk about the kind of media we should consume, what is better to skip and how to handle the emotions surrounding this historical and unprecedented time in all our lives.
