I challenge those of you who read this to not turn on a tv for a month. I've now gone 13 months without turning one on. Not watching tv means you'll have more free time, you won't be wasting hours of your day, you'll need to entertain yourself in more productive ways, and you'll save $50, or so, dollars a month on your cable or satellite bill.
After a month, or two, of not watching tv I bet that you'll not even miss watching it.
Join me and stop watching until the new year.
There's no time like the present to start good habits and end bad ones.
