Ten Reasons To Turn Off Your TV

Ten Reasons To Turn Off Your TV

    Watching television could hardly be described as a productive activity. I’d like to see something flip that in an article about TV Productivity, but until then it may be better turned off. Here are Ten reasons:

    Electricity We had two televisions, and they would each be on an average of four hours a day. Given a cost of $0.10 per kilowatt hour, and the fact that the smaller television used about 100 watts and the larger one used about 160 watts, that meant we were using a bit over a kilowatt hour each day. There’s another $40 a year that vanished.

    What I like about this post is another Ten suggestions of things to do instead of watching TV. Think about a minimum of 30 minutes you’re spending watching television and, for some, several hours per day. What else could you be doing?

    • Start an exercise plan.
    • Prepare meals.
    • Read a book you’ve always wanted to read.
    • Start a second business.
    • Be social.
    • Take an evening class.
    • Learn a new skill or a new hobby.
    • Take on a major project.
    • Get things done.
    • Take care of whatever bothers you. For me, it was taking a little bit of time each day to meditate and get in touch with my spiritual side, and it made a huge difference in my life.

    How much time are you saving if you quit TV? How much money could you potentially make instead?

    10 Ways to Lace Up Your Shoes Creatively

    10 Ways to Lace Up Your Shoes Creatively

    Perhaps one of the hardest things a 4-year-old kid can learn is to tie his shoes. On the contrary, for adults like us, it’s the simplest and probably the most boring activity we can think of. I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t want to register for a seminar on how to lace shoes, right!

    It’s obvious, you don’t even need to use your brain when tying shoelaces. Look back up, I said most b-o-r-i-n-g a while ago when I mentioned lacing shoes up. But I will take that back. Why? Because when I saw the post from Diply featuring videos of lacing up shoes artistically, I realize how intricate, complicated, and creative it is to lace up shoes. That is if you do it like the way we do it on the featured videos.
