When I show houses, and I walk into the living room, my clients will either discuss
But, as I reflect on my own life, my husband and I will sometimes watch the television. We will watch a movie together, or sometimes watch a television series. However, I fine that we either are
- On our cellphones
- Or one of us falls asleep on the couch (mainly ME!)
So, do people really still watch televisions? Are they still the focal point of the living room? Or has the smartphone taken away the focal point of the room, and has become the focal point of the individual (wow, that’s deep).
Beneficial Reasons to Get Rid of Television
Not only on cable, streaming channels, and electricity, but also not being as tempted by advertisements.
Instead of “I’ll go to sleep when the episode is over” and then falling asleep on the couch, why not just get up and go to bed?
This allows time to read, play games, meal prep, organize, clean, take a relaxing bath…
By eliminating the television, it may get you out of your comfort zone. You may tackle projects you have always wanted to, or you may pick up a new hobby you have always wanted to try.
Without the television as a distraction, this would allow you to share your day with your loved ones. This creates more focus and attention to those you care about. Also, this will ultimately create more awareness of your surroundings, and those around you. You can reminisce, reflect, and talk about life!
I know, I know, it may sound crazy, but in the day to day life, with all that we have to do, do we really NEED the television anymore. Think about all of the time you truly spend with the television. Hours. Days. Weeks. What if you spent that energy that was more productive? Think about all you could do!
