Last week we challenged ourselves to go TV free, this included watching things on the laptop. We'd chatted about it the week before but I didn't think the hubby could do it so I was quite surprised when he agreed. He's in advertising but even I was finding the ads to be the only interesting thing on. Mostly though it was a challenge about unplugging a little, to see what difference it made.
I found I unconsciously turn the telly on in the evenings when I'm the only one home. Something I realised after reaching for the remote a couple of times, forgetting the challenge. I've decided to consciously change this habit by putting music on or even enjoying some silence instead. The hubby read a book he's started many times before but never managed to get past the same few pages. We also chatted more, about our days, future plans and just stuff in general. This week, we are consciously watching less.
Have you gone without TV for any amount of time? Do you live in a TV free home? I'm impressed by that. I think I could live TV-less but I know the husband would object.
