Turn it Off

If you want to make something useful with your TV, turn it off. That´s the best you can do. A staggering percentage of homes all over the World have television sets, of these, almost half of them have three or more televisions. Even more, it is most likely one of the televisions might be in the bedroom. It is advisable to remove televisions from bedrooms since it promote that we spend more time watching at it.

After giving these advice I must say that I have reduce the time I spend watching TV to the point that I don´t watch tv anymore... but I have change it for something else. Now I watch a lot of online series. Which is not good either. Even though now I read more, I go to the gym, I do some gardening and hang out with my friends more, I have decided to stop following some series. The series I will stop following are Outsourced and The Office. The series I will keep following are Modern Family, Raising Hope, Archer, & Parks and Recreation.

  8. Sad part is I don't watch TV, haven't since I entered college some years ago (didn't bring one with me) and yet I've traded my Tv time for laptop/internet time. Not a good/fair trade.

  12. I watch some series online on my TV hooked to my computer, but I'm healthy, successful and social, so I'm not all that worried about watching a few of those. I also watch news though, so there are benefits to watching TV too. It's not all bad.

  14. Don't do that. Everything you like you should do it, with moderation. Games, TV, PC, etc.

  18. I agree completely. I watch the news and that's pretty much it. I'm spending all my time in front of my computer instead :)

  19. I don't have one in my bedroom, and ideally I would move my laptop from my bedroom, but its easier to work at the desk in here. If I had a separate room where I could, I probably would.

    Anyways, there aren't to many shows I have to watch. I find a couple of them interesting, but I'd rather find other stuff to do.
