The telly is addictive.For me, at least. I can watch anything and everything boradcasted. Sitcoms, movies, cartoons, news programs, debates, discussions, foreign movies, MTV, cooking shows, documentaries, soaps, cultural performances, etc, etc. I can vegetate in front of the telly 3 hours weekdays and up to eleven hours on weekends.
This morning, a timely wake up call arrived. Deciding to sleep in a little today, I woke up a little later than normal, still woozy and hobbling into the kitchen to pour myself a cup of orange juice, ready to live out my perfect, lazy Sunday. Then there it was. The loud blaring of the telly. My mum was watching a movie in a foreign language at 10.30am! I never really thought about how unsettling the noise was to others, until experiencing it this morning.
So starting today, I am pledging to turn off the telly and just live a little more. However tired I am after work. I pledge to talk. To sip a little wine and to eat dinner with company, not in front of the telly. I think its grand idea. Nina has discussed this tv addiction phenomenon previously, even going as far as declaring her Tuesdays tv-free, but I couldnt join in before. I wasnt ready. I still cant do that yet, switching off the tv for an entire day, but I refuse to watch it mindlesslyat the expense of my life. So what is your bad habit that you'd like to get rid off?
