Lately I’ve gotten into a bad habit of turning the TV on early, and even though I don’t always look at it, it steels my attention and the result is that I’ve been spending way (and I mean waaaay) too much time in front of the tube. Yesterday I realized I need to give myself a detox. A TV detox.
Now, since there are a couple of programs that gives me immensely joy to watch, I’m giving myself a daily limit.
And my daily TV limit is – 1 hour.
I know for some this sounds like a lot, but from where I’ve been going lately, this is a severe restriction.
The same goes for my smartphone/iPad time. I tend to get a little engrossed when surfing the web, and before you know it, it’s been hours. So just for measures, I’m going to throw in some restrictions on this as well.
So here it is – no more than 1 hour combined Smartphone/iPad/PC use daily.
There might be one and only one exception to this rule! Sometimes preparing a post takes me longer than an hour. So should I run into that issue during my enforced detox, I have hereby granted myself permission to finish my post 🙂
Now, how long will this detox last? Hmmmmm, let’s see… Why don’t I start with two weeks and see how that goes.
So what if I fail? Then what?
Then! I get no TV whatsoever for a while….
When do I start? Well actually, I started today 😉
Why do I do it? Because I need to be more mindful on what I spend my time on…
And to steal a detail from my friend over at What I shed Today – Shedding style: reduce 😉
