Recently, we published an op-ed about the connection between polarized thinking, depression and anxiety. Recognizing our thinking has become polarized is the first step to break the cycle – embracing that nuance and complexity are simply part of life instead of catastrophic and uncontrollable variables.
In conjunction with that essay, we asked our readers two questions:
1. How do you minimize your own polarized thinking?
2. What media do you consume and how does that increase or decrease your black and white thinking?
