I’ve been wanting to do this for some time, but I’m finally committing to no TV/Netflix during the week, except for my favorite PBS Newshour program :)
My nighttime routine for the past few years involved watching a few TV episodes on Netflix before going to bed. My favorite was The Office. I could blow through the full series and then gleefully press the Season 1, Episode 1 button, seemingly, into eternity. But no more!
I’m not quitting because it kept me up or disrupted my sleep.
The reason why I’m quitting is I really want that time back! The thought of how many hours I’ve spent watching and re-watching shows on Netflix is depressing. Sure, it can be a nice disconnection after a long day, but man will it invalidate hours of your life.
So here’s a few things I’m going to put in TVs place:
- Playing my guitar
- Listening to CBC Radio 2
- Reading! Finally, I have such a list to get start on.
- Lugnuts games
Help me stay true to this promise! If you can, wait a few months and then text, e-mail, or comment on this post to see if my TV is still dark on weekday nights. :)
