Many of us are very picky and particular about what food we eat. These days there have been so much consciousness on healthy diets. This is so because we know that our bodies reflect the diet fed them. Physical stamina, resistance to disease, body size, even how long we live are all closely related to what we eat.

While many of us have almost perfected the art of healthy dieting, we have failed to also realize that our minds also reflect the kind of “mind food” we feed them.

Some of us think it is our duty to worry. We feel we are not living if we have nothing to worry about in a day. It’s is important to cease to worry if you must live your greatest life. Let us then cease to worry. Let us stop the habit— if we have it— of telling everybody about our troubles. The most effective way to drive out our troubles, is to forget them; bury them; and not keep them alive by airing them continually.
