Mental Health and Mind Food

I love to eat! (Especially what’s not, technically, good for me.) You love to eat, too? What types of things?

My wife has her theories–on life–and helping me. She is my caregiver, so she cares about what I eat or what I feed my body and my mind. I tend toward depression. (Which impacts me and my family interactions.) I think a lot of us, diagnosed or undiagnosed, can get down and depressed if we focus too long and hard enough on the negatives in the world. She wants me to choose my entertainment wisely. To be selective with uplifting messages vs. hate-filled, violence-filled ones. Does thinking happier thoughts really work? Test and see.

My wife tends to be overly-positive (it drives me…nuts!) and I tend to be negative (which probably drives her nuts), somehow together– we end up with (hopefully)– a more balanced view if we can see from the Other’s perspective.
