Yes, I know my last post was about top TV series to watch and now I going to tell you to do the opposite thing , but from personal experience I found that TV does more harm than good ( I’m not saying one should completely stop watching Telly but limiting it to 2-3 hr a week). So , here are the reasons you should stop watching TV.
Influencing the mindset
Anybody who has ever been a policeman, a lawyer or an government agent agent will attest agree that television does not accurately portray their life . In almost all aspects, television rarely depicts the world and life accurately. Too much television results in disillusionment about what to expect from the world around us . It creates various expectations which are shattered when reality strikes .
Recent studies agreed to the fact that when watching TV , the brain becomes very inactive and goes in a state which is similar to sleeping . It makes our brain dull and influences us to do easy or dull activities .
Anyone who spends six hours a day in front of the box is at risk of dying five years sooner than those who enjoy more active pastimes, it is claimed. Researchers say that watching too much TV is as dangerous as smoking or being overweight, and that the “ubiquitous sedentary behavior” should be seen as a “public health problem”.
It’s a fact that after watching various sitcoms or series , we make very unreal expectations for the future . A person may think his college , office or sex life may be extraordinary like all the characters . Due to which when actual think will happen , the only think the person may feel is negativity and disappointment .
Usually we use TV as a scapegoat to hide from our conflicts . We watch movies even when our projects are due the other day or binge watch when feeling sad , but instead of facing the reality and confronting the issue , we delay it and that cost us negatively in the future and creates more baggage .
If we stop wasting time on TV , we will have enough time do to things that makes us happy in reality like spending time with family and friends , reading (which I love) or any other hobbies. The time which was wasted earlier can be used to salvage our life and make us productive which in return will give us a good life .
Let us save ourselves from becoming a couch potato and bring changes in our current lifestyle .
