Here’s some food for thought about food for thought
You’ve heard the expression…right? When somebody thinks something is worth considering, they might say, “Hmm…that’s food for thought.” Maybe you’ve said it yourself. I know I have. Many times. Have you ever considered how important it is to feed your thoughts good food? It’s more important than what you feed your body. And that’s vitally important. So, what do you feed your thoughts?
No one is immune to the lure of junk food for your thoughts. You know what I’m talking about. Meaningless movies, TV, games, etc. We all go there. Trouble is…that junk-food-sit-back-and-relax kind of food for thought weakens your brain. Just like your body needs nutritious food to operate at its best, your brain needs nutritious information. And good news! It’s almost literally all around you this very minute. You just need to tap into it. More good news! There are great tools to help you tap into it. Maybe you’ve heard of some of these…
Any of those sound familiar? Do you own one? I’m gonna go out on a limb and assume you do since there are billions of them on the planet. So, how do you tap into nutritious information for your brain? First step…stop tapping into the junk food. Turn off the TV. Skip the latest superhero movie (at least for a week or two). Ignore the lame-brain political pundits and all that goes with them. Then…
…find a book, or a DVD, or a video, or something online (using your favorite device) that challenges you to think outside what you learned in public school. I’m not getting on your case about public school. I’m a recovering public school graduate myself. And I remember some awful things they forced on us. And I lived in one of the most conservative school districts in the United States. No exaggeration. We had strict dress codes, haircut codes, and behavior codes. There was still corporal punishment. (like smacks on the behind with a “board of education” if you chewed gum in gym class) We also had prayer at all school functions, before games, and in some classes.
Yet, with all that conservative leaning, we were still fed the evolution fairy tale. Yeesh. I’ll bet you were too. So, that’s one of the reasons I suggest getting to true higher learning. And the best source I could possibly recommend to start with is found in the New Testament of the Bible. Uh-oh…he’s talking religion again, Martha! No, actually I’m talking about some of the most nutritious food for thought you’ll ever read. If you don’t own a Bible, no problem. Use your favorite device and tap into the wonderful world of the digital Bible.
There you’ll discover how your exercise routine might be helping a little, but connecting with your Creator is infinitely more important. And that’s just one of the thousands and thousands of nutritious nuggets you’ll discover for your brain. Far superior to those golden nuggets under the golden arches or at the Colonel’s place.
Today’s a great day to start. Your tomorrow on earth isn’t guaranteed. Ready to start? Or do you prefer junk food for the brain?
