” you cannot turn it off successfully, however until there is something you want to be or something you want to do, right then and that is more important than the television”
1. Missing out on social interaction:
Every hour you spend in front of TV Is another hour you’re not making the most of your time. You could be playing with your family, conversing with your friend, Reading, painting, starting a business or another activity you enjoy. Connection is one of the basic human needs we all have and it will never be fulfilled by your television set. So spend my time connecting with friends, books, with the world something real that can change your life.
2. Programming yourself with negativity:
Just about every television show, from comedy to drama, to reality TV and the news is negative. If you look at almost any TV show there is a complete lock of positive redeeming message. While there are exception to this rule they are few and far between, so choose carefully what you decide to spend your time watching when you do.
3. TV can poison your belief system:
In comedies, we laughed the stupid/ over waight /socially awkward/stereotype/different people. The news is filled with stories of pain /suffering/disaster/death and arguing has to be about problem in order to create the drama. Very often they are first world dilemmas that as a result are causing petty arguments,does this type of drama happen in your household? All of This is effectively your outlook on life and the way you see the world.
4. Feeling of inadequacy:
Life is never going to be like a TV show and this can make people very disillusioned when they compare it with their real life. The message within television imply on a regular basis that we are not petty/smart/funny change. Our live can feel quite empty when compared to the perfection of the TV world. Ohh and here’s another advert for a product that will make you feel better. Happiness I can assure you, does not desire from material objects.
5. Television might be a addictive:
For those who watch a lot, is very hard to quit, so it is similar to a dependency like alcoholism or any other addiction. Recent studies have found that up to 12% TV watches feel unhappy about the amount of TV they watch, consider themselves addict yet feel incapable of stopping themself.
