Good job getting into the spirit of th's onions. I mangle spelling here all the time.
Re: the Dow -- you might ask yourself , "What am I going to do if the Dow is (fill in the blank) up/down 100 points or whatever."
Then before you look at the actual number, commit to yourself what you will actually do with the information.
If you've been here awhile and gotten the long run religiion, you'll realize that you will do absolutely nothing with the information.
That can be the first step to saying, Hmm.... if I am not actually going to take any action based on today's Dow or 3:00's Dow, then I guess I don't really care what it is.
Understand that modern life jerks us all around all the time with lots of things that say, in effect, "look at me, I'm new, I'm important!" and which really aren't important or new at all.
So it gets easier every year (is this the definition of an old Phart?) to just let it come and go as general background noise.
Off to teach my meditation class. That is always an option, btw -- you can meditate on the meaning of the Dow. Think about it long enough and it will lose its iron-cold grip. And you can loosen some of the Dow-hype if you stop listening to the 'news'. Not much new there, either.
