I used to enjoy reading the paper with my morning coffee; it's taken me over a half century to break the habit - it was a poison I dragged along with me throughout my day, never realising it's effects upon my frame of mind, therefore, every act/decision of the day was colored by some calamity or other.
My advice? Grab your headphones instead of the paper when you pour that cup. By all means, check the news of the day, but wait much later to do so.
