When monitoring your physical diet it’s easy to say what needs to come and what needs to go. It’s easy to set up the parameters. Easier said than done, I know. But when trying to do the same for your mental diet not sure it’s as simple as that.
Ignoring things is how people get killed in traffic. Like it’s not that smart to “ignore the negative” if you think about it.
So I’m thinking a more proper mental diet is about considering how you think, feel, and act when something negative arises. This is being “mindful”. This is being proactive instead of reactive. Again, easier said than done.
