“Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are.” -Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
You are what you eat. The quality of what you eat determines your physical health. People who eat junk food may be unhappy with the results. But they shouldn’t be surprised by the results. So, why are people who consume mental junk surprised by bad results? I’m talking about over the top news that drains the life out of us. I’m talking about social media that causes us to compare our typical day to everyone else’s best moments. These things are instantly entertaining. But, it’s about as good for you as a king-sized candy bar and a 77-ounce soda. And, the returns on all you consume are exponential. The more good things that go in, the more likely you will keep choosing good stuff. However, the same goes for the bad stuff. Therefore, be mindful of what you put in. Eat things that will give life, not use it up. Do the same with information.
