TSA #12 – Stop watching one TV show

Feb 6, 2012 by

This weeks Truly Simple Action is very simple.  Just stop watching one TV show.

You don’t have to stop watching TV completely, although thats not a bad idea.  This week you only need to cut out one show.  Pick a show that you just don’t watch that much any more.  Pick a show that you have several episodes backlogged on your DVR and just stop watching it. Pick a show that you only watch when there is nothing on and that has no redeeming value and just stop watching it.

We just watch too much TV.  I know I go through phases where I watch too much and then I try to scale it back and do other things.

This method helps me do this in small steps.  Just pick one show.  It could be a great show that you really like but somehow haven’t been keeping up with.  That gives you a nice chance to say, obviously its not THAT important or I would be watching it.  So stop watching it.  Or just cut out any silly “reality” show on MTV/VH1/E etc.  And I put reality in quotes because you know it isn’t real.  Its not even close to being real.

So this week, your Truly Simple Action is to pick one show and stop watching it.  Quite an easy task really because its actually requiring you to do no work.

So take that extra time that you have and take a walk or read a book or go do something nice for someone else.
