“I Watch What I Watch.”

— Conscious Good

Thousands of years ago Buddha said “What you think you become.” Now, scientists the globe over have confirmed the Buddha’s declaration. Your thoughts – and observing your thoughts – can change the grey matter of your brain.

Now, think for a minute about what you watch or listen to. Wouldn’t it follow that the media you consume holds the same power? In fact, researchers have drawn that link. From a recent article in Psychology Today, “It turns out that what you watch, read, listen to and play can affect your mood, temper, and even how generous and kind you are to others afterwards!”

What we watch, read or listen to can help elevate us, to keep us connected to each other and to our highest selves. On the other hand, sensationalistic media can debase others and ourselves, build barriers and stifle our vision and growth. Thus, we should start treating our minds with the same sensitivity we show our bodies. It’s time we become more conscious of the media we allow into our lives.
