We are a lot like computers. We take inputs which we process which determines some result.
If you load a poorly written program into a computer, the computer performs poorly.
If you enter nonsense data into a computer program, the result you get is yet more nonsense.
In the IT world, this is a principal known as GIGO. Garbage In Garbage Out.
We are similar.
If we fill our minds with rubbish, for example tabloid news, or blogs telling us that we aren’t good enough, or even hang around people who treat us poorly our resulting experience will be affected negatively. For example our self image might be damaged, we might attain unrealistic expectations of ourselves or others, our attitude towards ourselves and others might change to the negative.
If we eat and drink lots of rubbish food like lots of sugary soda, lollies, alcohol, processed foods like chips and cake etc we will experience inconsistent energy levels and mood.
Therefore, we should try and be on guard protecting our minds and bodies from Garbage In so we don’t get Garbage Out.
We should aim for Good In Good Out
