I have never been formally diagnosed, but I'm near certain that I have some form or another of mild anxiety disorder. A lot of seemingly innocuous things will get me thinking of topics that trigger my anxiety and it can make enjoying those things hard. In addition to this, staying informed and up to date on those topics also gets me stuck in an anxious loop that can make it hard to focus on anything else. In the name of preserving my mental health, is it okay to stay willfully ignorant on topics like politics, financial advice, and especially climate change? I feel a bit guilty for avoiding things and I have a sneaking suspicion that I'll run face first into these topics eventually, but I'm honestly not quite sure what to do. Any advice?
