Why I Got Rid Of The TV!
Last year I decided to conduct an experiment...could I live without my TV? Over the past 4 years I have phased out watching the news, following a series and general mindless TV watching. The TV was often switched off at the power point and even the rare times I would turn it on, I began to find that it was just a way to zone out and waste time. But living in what seems like a time poor world where each year appears to pass by faster than the last, I realised that I had betters ways to spend my spare time. I feel privileged to have beautiful beaches on my doorstep, a book shelf full of unread books and a delux bath tub. With these things and more at my fingertips, accompanied by my need for 8-10 hours of sleep each night, then I haven’t been surprised by the fact I don’t miss the TV one iota! I am more intentional with how I spend my time and feel that as a result, I get the most out of my days. That being said I have watched a couple of series over summer and am happy to pull out the laptop for a good documentary but by and large TV is no longer a part of my life and I hope to keep it that way! Tell me...could you live without your TV???
