Can you live without you TV?

Hey guys and welcome to LimitlessWays,


 Could you live without a TV??

Well, we can and we have just chosen to do so!
 After having pulled the power plug of our TV a couple of months ago in order to save some money on standby power consumption we have realized that we actually haven't used it in a while.
When we did, we got annoyed by all the advertisement in the program.
Advertisement to such an extend that a normal 2 hour movie ends up filling an entire saturday night for several hours.
That is ridiculous!
So a couple of weeks ago I asked Alex if she needs the Tv.
I didn't either!
So I took some pictures and put it up on gumtree.

Sold today!

Since we didn't really use it anyway it won't be much of a change for us anyway but for some people that'd be a major shift in lifestyle.
You'd be asking: " What should I do when I normally would watch TV?"

Well, that is an excellent question. I cannot give you an answer to your personal question unfortunately, but for us it is an awesome opportunity to use the "TV-time" and do something that has some meaning and that adds some value to your personal life instead of wasting it zapping through channels on the pursue for something somewhat entertaining.

  • We read
  • We have conversations, in fact we talk a lot more than we used to.
  • We learn new skills (like writing a blogpost)
  • We play games

Whatever we do has a good chance of having more meaning than vegetating there in front of the glowing screen and waiting until the next day arrives and we can go back to work.

There is something else to it. Something profound in fact. By having sold our TV, we have eradicated a major source of distraction out of our live.

No more annoying commercials, advertisements or six o'clock horrornews.

You get to choose what you hear and see, with that you get to choose what influences you in whichever way it may does. If you have a problem spending too much money buying stuff, if you are all the time depressed because of horrornews, then I have to say that there's a way to rid of that.

Get rid of it!

I hope y'all enjoyed this read.

Until next time!  Peace
