Walking on Sunshine

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?

  1. hello! i found you at the blog hop. i am a writer and live in hawaii where many people do live without tv–including me at the moment as i have not learned how to use the new cable service. it does make everyone go outside more but then it is hawaii so they would probably go outside anyway?

    I agree with Priya Parmar. I would not be surprised to find out there’s a correlation between locations with dodgy weather and higher consumption of television.

    On that note I am probably not going to partake in this round 🙂 Television is my outlet from stress and giving it up before my exam is not a good idea!
