This month seemed to just fly by so quickly, despite my
commitment to not watch any TV for the entire month. It was much easier than it sounds, trust me. Your time will become filled with other
things, hopefully things that are much more important and meaningful.
I don’t feel like I really missed anything. I still read my Wall Street Journal to
keep up with events.
Surprisingly, I think I have a better or more
positive daily attitude since I don’t watch any news. I believe I’m already a pretty positive thinker, but I have
to say that I surprised myself to see how much negative influence the little
news that I used to watch was having on me.
I’ve been reading more — I finished 3 books: The
Lost Symbol, Airframe, Rich Dad Poor Dad, and have made it partway through
Smart Couples Finish Rich.
We watched several DVDs for films that we really
would not have had time to watch before giving up TV.
The house was more quiet and peaceful in a way that
made me notice how much noise was going into my head each day.
Should we keep going without TV? Should we cancel our cable all together? I’m seriously considering it.
