Tools to Help You Tend the Garden of Your Mind
“Your mind is like a garden: whatever you plant will grow.” – Charles David Heineke
Once you’ve seen something, you can’t unsee it. That’s why it’s important to be careful about what you see in the first place.
To help you be more discriminating with the media you consume, check out doesthedogdie.com. It describes itself as, “crowdsourced emotional spoilers for movies, tv, books and more.”
Site creator John Whipple tells lifehacker.com that he created the site because his sister “found it frustrating to watch a movie with a dog in it because worrying over the survival of the dog made it impossible to enjoy the movie.”
But beyond simply helping you determine whether or not a furry friend meets its demise in a show you might want to watch, doesthedogdie.com can help you know whether it contains other content you want to avoid.
And, especially if you have kids, you might also want to consider Common Sense Media, a site that helps parents know what’s in media content before consuming it.
You’re already the gardener of your mind. Here’s to your becoming a MASTER gardener!
