National TV-Free Week

Photo by suphakit73
TV-Free Week started back in 1994, as a way to encourage people to watch less TV and to enjoy other activities. Now that you can watch TV on a host of electronic devices with screens, the event is also known as Screen-Free Week and Digital Detox Week.

Schools encourage students to turn off TVs and find other ways to entertain themselves. Libraries encourage reading and community centers encourage active play.

When you watch television, you are exposed to unrealistic lifestyles and subjected to advertising for things you don’t need. You may not realize how many decisions you make based on what you see on TV.

Think about everything you could be getting done if you weren't watching television. You could finish projects you started, start a project you’ve been putting off or simply spend some time putting things away.

How much TV do you watch during a typical week? Could you avoid watching any this week?

Organized by Marcie TM: Save time and money by letting go of what you don't need and finding room for what you value
