Turn It Off for World Television Day

You heard right. Turn off the TV. It'll be there tomorrow, the next day, and the next. I know it's supposed to be the TV's day, but don't we watch enough TV without dedicating a whole day to it? So for this World Television Day, challenge yourself to turn off the TV, and do something active, creative, and fun.

What is there to do instead?

There are a ton of things you can do besides watch TV--here's a handful of ideas.

  1. Read a book

  2. Go to a museum

  3. Listen to music

  4. Watch the sunset or sunrise

  5. Yoga

  6. Play with your pet

  7. Ride your bike

  8. Hike

  9. Go camping

  10. Have a picnic

  11. Cook/bake

  12. Pick up around the house

  13. Spend time with friends and family

  14. Call someone you haven't spoken to in awhile

  15. Volunteer

There's so much to do rather than watch TV all day. Take advantage of your time today and be present. Taking a break from electronics and screen time can benefit your overall physical, mental, and emotional health. With the constant distraction of our TVs, phones, laptops, and tablets, it can be easy to forget about ourselves and those we care about. So it's essential to make a conscious effort towards upholding relationships with others and ourselves. Taking time for yourself or spending time with friends and family can help you get in a good head-space. Spending time in nature, outside, or quietly indoors can also help you "reset". Today, take whatever time you need for yourself and enjoy your TV-free day!
