In the previous article I have written about the “News Diet”. In this article I am writing about a similar, yet different topic, “The Mental Diet”.
You can eat indiscriminately, anything you find in your refrigerator, and you can exercise some control. In the same way, you may let every thought enter your mind freely, and you can supervise the thoughts that you think.
You may eat junk food, and you may eat healthy food. In the same way, you may think negative thoughts and you may think positive thoughts.
You can reduce the amount of food you eat, lose weight and shape your body, and you can also reject certain thoughts and encourage other, more motivating and positive thoughts.
You can follow a certain diet, and eat certain foods in certain quantities at certain times. Similarly, you can follow a mental diet, rejecting negative thoughts and too much restless and unnecessary thinking, calming your mind, strengthening it and putting it in shape.
You can take care to avoid unhealthy or fattening foods, and you can also take care of what you think, what you put into your mind.
You may fill your mind with thoughts from morning till night, as most people do, or you can choose to give your mind some rest. You can choose to follow a “Mental Diet”.
There is a diet related to eating, and there is a diet related to thinking.
