When conversing with a friend recently, I realized how much I “consume” information. I follow various local, state and national news outlets. The stack of books that I plan to read this summer includes more non-fiction than fiction. My “to watch” list is filled more with documentaries than scripted TV. However, I won’t pretend that reality shows aren’t on in the background while I am doing chores or cooking meals.
My thirst for new information also extends to food and beverage shopping rituals. I am that person in the aisle spending the extra few minutes to read the Nutrition Facts panel when purchasing new items. I am also that person who will put an item back on the shelf if the Nutrition Facts don’t align with the health-and-wellness goals I hope to instill in my family.
