Here’s something to think about: What would happen if you turned off the TV for just one week? Would you go outside more? Would you read more? Take up a new sport? Have some great conversations? Smell the roses? Well, next week people are getting the chance to find out by switching off the box in something called ‘Make Week’ – that is ‘Make Life Happen Week’, according the the guys at SimpleOrganic.
I think it’s a great idea. I used to have no TV and learned not to miss it. And then I bought a Sky subscription and watched way too much. Today I watch a bit and am happy with the level of my consumption. Mostly I watch News 24 and EWTN but, every now and again, I buy a TV paper and put things I fancy into Sky+ to watch on a rainy day. Doing without it for a week isn’t that big of a deal. I think. If we were talking radio – well, that would be a problem. But I can live without TV for a week. How about you?
