There's just NOTHING mentally healthy about reading depressing pandemic news all day long...  so why are so many of us ADDICTED to it?

There's a new term that describes sitting around, scrolling through your phone, reading depressing news for hours and hours:  "Doomscrolling."

So what can you do instead?
  A new survey asked people what they're doing to stay mentally healthy right now.


Here are the top five answers:


1.  Checking in with family, 60%.

2.  Trying to exercise more, 35%.

3.  Limiting news consumption, 30%.

4.  Making plans for once the pandemic is over, 30%.

5.  Doing nice things for other people, 29%
