Why you should stop watching TV

Reading Celestine Chua’s blog post Top 10 Reasons You Should Stop Watching TV reinforced my own belief that watching TV is more than a waste of time.

As I mentioned in a Woodbury Bulletin column TV Fasting August, I have not watched TV since my son was born in 1998.

By not watching TV, we have more time to live our own lives the way we want and create our own experiences instead of living through the lives and experiences of someone else.

The best memories come from life’s experiences. We can only build memories with experiences, our own experiences.

Life is too short to spend it by watching others living their lives.
