This week, for no reason in particular, I have decided to refrain from watching television. By week I mean from the time I got up this morning (Monday) to the time I go to bed Friday. A work week without television, I guess I should say.
My theory is that without television I will be more productive. I have a list of things I want to accomplish this week, and I’m proud to say that this evening I sat down for 2 hours and actually did productive things. I did some writing, went through mail, and caught up on some emails. Of course I still haven’t unpacked my suitcase from last week’s trip, but I’m sure that will come in due time.
The most difficult time for not watching TV is when I’m eating. It’s such a habit to take my food to the coffee table and turn on the TV, but tonight I ate my table like a real grown-up and listened to music. Frankly, it was weird.
