In this wicked world we get biased immediately based "visuals" we observe. No wonder we immediately pay attention to highly visualized commercials, movies or flashing online news. I often found that daily bombardment of "visuals" which most of the time are related to negative news, affect us badly -- at least deep inside our mind. We get "used to" it and get along with our lives but somewhere it has caused damage to our inner self.
In place of spending our large amount time reading/watching these kind of visuals, if we spend more time with quality book which has good narration in addition to proper usage of language, it is very motivating and enriching experience even with our language skills! That also get reflected in our speaking, writing!!
