3 Ways to Break Up With Too Much TV

Updated: Jan 9, 2020

What do you do with your free time? Chances are, you watch a good amount of TV.

In 2018, Nielsen reported that the average American spends nearly half of their day consuming media, with four or more hours a day being dedicated to television.

That equals 2 months of nonstop TV per year.

Meanwhile, one of the most common reasons people don’t exercise is because they don’t have enough time.

What changes could you make in your life if you had a few hours back? Check out 3 ways you can break up with TV in 2019.

1. Keep Track

Keeping track of how much TV you are watching can be an eye opener. For one week, write down all of the times you watch TV throughout the day (it can add up faster than you think.) After 7 days, look at your patterns and decide how you want to move forward in the future.


2. Wait Until 8

Wait until you are finished with the day to turn your tv on. Have you had dinner, spent time with your family, and exercised? Now you can watch your favorite show and actually enjoy it.


3. Replace It

No one ever wished they watched more TV at the end of the year. Chose one thing that you really want to do, but have been putting off, like exercising or a new hobby. Next week, spend some time that you would have been watching television, working on making this dream a reality.
