Time for a TV Fast!

Have you noticed changes in your children’s personalities – increased irritability, impatience, even hostility? Or have you seen these issues  in yourself? Do you notice that time seems to slip away from you? Has the contentment and peace you once enjoyed vanished?

Consider the amount of time you and your family spend ingesting the output of our major media: especially TV. And if you believe as many do that TV is the source of many psychological ills, try a radical concept that’s gaining popularity: go TV-free for thirty or forty days.

You’ve probably heard for years the familiar complaints about the effects of television. Well, the news is that these ill-effects have become more proven and more dire with every passing year. It’s now an established fact that TV watching leads to poor dietary habits, inactivity (and all the resulting health effects, even an increased risk of juvenile diabetes!), and a host of other ills, including ADHD and a greater likelihood of teenaged viewers starting to smoke! Yet, in our advertising-driven, sensationalistic, 24-hour-a-day news cycles, even the other forms of media can cause stress, anxiety, and a feeling of disconnection from our surroundings. Going “without” these time-wasting, attention-sucking diversions can actually add hours to your day and open up your life to the kinds of enrichments you always wanted to enjoy but “never had the time for.”

Your kids will tell you they’re bored at first, but boredom passes quickly and usually turns into creativity. Soon you’ll find your family taking hikes, playing games, engaging in conversation, and many more truly healthy activities!
