It’s been interesting but very liberating. First and foremost, in our household no one really has time for television. Realistically, it’s like spending money you don’t have. I don’t have time for tv, so paying for it is adding the extra distraction I DONT NEED right now. Don’t get me wrong. I enjoy tv. I love certain shows that shall remain nameless (cough, cough Homeland, Once Upon A Time and a good reality splurge on Bravo).
Here is what I’ve realized after switching off the boob tube for almost 2 weeks.
The amount of time I have for other things. In the past week alone I’ve completed projects I only talked about before.
I’ve spent more time WITH my kids (yes, that’s possible) and have allowed creative juices to flow for family activities. It’s been nice.
Oh, did I mention the quiet time at night. I can just sit in the peace and quiet.
If I REALLY want some entertainment I have to fish out a movie from our stash, and that’s fine by me. I just now have zero obligation to networks that monopolized my time before. I would get so caught up on what we HAD to watch at whatever time, it was a little bit crazy.
For the time being there is still Redbox…but for the foreseeable future, we are cable free and saving a few bucks along the way!
Happy New Year!
