Recently I read an article on learnvest called, "7 Reasons Why TV is Ruining Your Life..." In this article it basically states that television is not good for your life or your finances. The main point was that the less time you spend in front of the tube the more time you will have to do the things you enjoy and in regards to your finances the less time you spend with wasting time watching TV you will save on your light bill. I took this advice into heed and figured, why not give it a try.
Through the years I have realized the older I get the busier I get and those three hours I spend in front of the tube after work, I can use that extra time to be more productive. The article states to cut out TV completely but I thought that was a bit drastic as I love my comedy shows, no "Modern Family," would be taking this experiment to far.
Although I didn't cut out TV completely I have realized, which I'm sure most of you have also is that most of the time there is nothing on TV anyway but you will still find yourself flipping the channels until you find something and by then you realize all that time you wasted could have went to good use. This is exactly what I stopped doing and just allotted myself the time to watch my fab shows which only takes up four hours of my time Monday-Friday. That's definitely a huge change from 15 hours a week of watching nothing.
Although, I only cut back and not completely cut off television I have definitely noticed a difference. I have more time to blog, conduct my business on EBay, continue to prioritize ways to continue to grow my jewelry business amongst other things. Needless to say the light bill has also dropped significantly.
As women especially, we tend to have allot on our plate and always state there just isn't enough time in the day. Well if we just cut down some of that TV time we will definitely have more time on our hands.
Ladies, have you taken the step to cut down any of your TV time and if so has it made a difference within your everyday life?
