A few words from Thoreau on avoiding overexposure:

“We should treat our minds, that is, ourselves, as innocent and ingenuous children, whose guardians we are, and be careful what objects and what subjects we thrust on their attention. Read not the Times. Read the Eternities.” – Henry David Thoreau, “Life Without Principle.”
