Has The Television Got You Hypnotized Night After Night?
The TV Had me, and Now I’m taking back what’s mine.
I know… watching TV, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu or even Youtube can be a lot of fun, but what’s it costing you?
For 30 Days, I won’t be watching TV and I hope you’ll join me if you think you need a break.
I intend to go a full 30 days from now without watching, but I really started this challenge a few days ago, and I know it’s going to be a good one.
It’s amazing how easy it is to Binge Watch many of the Easily Available TV series on Amazon Prime or Netflix, and that’s what I was doing.
I got excited about this challenge several days ago, and I began immediately.
What’s even more amazing is how serious the withdrawal symptoms have been. I didn’t know how much I was using TV as an escape until I stopped abruptly.
I kind of lost my self this weekend and became a little violent. Don’t worry, I wasn’t violent towards anyone, but I did break my new office chair when I got upset, and I blew up on more than one occasion. NOT Proud. : )
The good thing is, now I know this is a real challenge; One that’s got me cornered and faced with the reality I live in.
If you’re like me, and determined to make good changes in your life, you might benefit from a TV Break.
Just so you know, I don’t think you have to go to extremes. I’ll be cutting out all TV, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, along with Youtube viewing for the sake of entertainment, but I am allowing some conditional watching during the 30 days.
I’ll watch if…
- My wife asks me to watch a movie with her, which almost never happens.
- My kids ask me to watch something for fun during playtime.
- It’s something relevant to the Niches I follow to learn from.
- It’s educational, and/or tutorial.
What will you do? Can you Break Up with Your TV for 30 Days?
Let me know if you do, and how it’s going. Peace. : )
