How To Deal With Upsetting News

Not every story we bring on news2day can be positive. Sometimes we bring news that can be upsetting.

The reason this upsetting story is in the news, is because it’s unusual, it doesn’t happen often. And that’s important to remember!

Feeling upset or worried is totally normal. And if you’re troubled by what you see, it might be a good idea to share your worries. Or perhaps you don’t feel like talking about a sad story, that’s okay too. Everyone is different.

More often than not, positive stories can arise out of sad events. Like how a community came together to help, or how emergency services worked hard to save many people.

Focusing on the positive can be helpful, and doing something that makes you happy, like playing with friends, or reading your favourite book can help you feel much better!
