When we are tired and feel the need of some comfort, the appeal of snuggling up in front of the Television can be too good to deny. All we have to do is to press the buttons to bring the world’s best entertainment into our lives and we are entertained.

A little TV is not a bad thing, but a lot of TV is a waste of life.

Dear Reader, welcome back to my blog series ‘Celebrate Your Life‘. Earlier we learned about breathing. This post will introduce you to the new rule. Our third rule is – Kill Your TV.

In 2015, according to Statista*, average Americans watched TV for 274 minutes a day. That is approximately 4.5 hours. That is a quite good amount of time. Globally this data is almost similar.

As I said, a little TV is not a bad thing, but a lot of TV is a waste of life. For most of us, our only time at home with our families is after work and would appear that we are wasting too many of those precious moments with our loved ones by entering a televisual coma. Not only that, television influences our worldview, increase the level of our dissatisfaction, manipulates our spending, and even decrease the regularity of our lovemaking. Naughty TV. 😉  😛 

Imagine a day, when TV is not an option for entertainment. Yo will have a lot of things to do that are truly engaging and rewarding.

Want to know? Yeah, here is a list of works you can do instead of watching TV. And I’m sure, you will enjoy these.

Here we go –

  1. Read a book
  2. Go for a walk
  3. Phone a friend
  4. Learn an instrument
  5. Try some new recipes
  6. Hang out with your family and have an engaging conversation
  7. Meditate
  8. Grow a plant or make a garden on your balcony

I think you will enjoy these.

Let’s lead an extraordinary life and not just watch other people’s on TV.

Do this for two days a week and don’t forget to let me know your feeling if you like this rule. Let me know your experience of a day without TV by placing a comment below the post.

Enjoy !
