Use information better

When the internet is your source of knowledge enlightenment, there a few useful rules that you can apply to make a better use of the information: 

Expand your go-to sources

But keep verified ones handy. When you find a source of reliable information, you may want to add the page to favorite or subscribe to the blog or other updates from this page to keep informed. Nevertheless, keep searching for new websites or platforms which deliver high-value information. Even though we have access to a sea of information, relevant and reliable representation of facts is still a rarity

Search for disapproving opinions

Mindfulness theory explained

When you want to verify the information you heard and find interesting, do not search for the opinions confirming the statement, but the ones that disapprove it.

Only by getting both sides of facts can you decide which information is representative.

For example, you hear that kombucha is very healthy. Do not search for “health benefits of kombucha,” but “what are dangers of drinking kombucha”, “is kombucha really healthy”, “kombucha – benefits, and cautions”.

Check the date published

Information tends to get outdated, and something that was considered a fact 10 years ago may not be the most accurate anymore.
