I stopped watching Television approximately 4 years ago. It wasn’t really a conscious decision, but something that just happened naturally over the last few years as I begun looking at the things I needed to do in order to make progress.
I suppose personal development has been a major influence, but what seems to be obvious to me is that it’s a major problem for all of us when it comes to breaking away from it and doing what makes you truly happy.
I’m seeing a huge disconnect with the people I tend to meet on a daily basis and fail to form meaningful discussions with because I didn’t watch an episode of ‘Breaking Bad’ or ‘Coronation Street’.
I also see a bunch of people dedicate their whole lives towards things that aren’t important in the grand scheme of what their lives are truly about. We fail to see it due to the effects television does to you over years of consumption and entertainment.
Since stopping it, I’ve realised why I became different to most people in terms of mindset and beliefs, which I honestly believe is a more healthy attitude.
Here are the things i’ve personally learned the minute I stopped watching television and what you will also see if you decide to stop.
