Want to see fewer ads this Christmas? Watch a little less TV.
If you’ve ever thought about going without TV, now really is the ideal time to try!
We’ve been without it for almost three years, and I appreciate that the most during the holidays. (Maybe during the election, too.)
We don’t have to watch after-Thanksgiving ads, we don’t hear false promises of what will make our loved ones happy, and we don’t have the noise. It’s worth it.
Going without TV doesn’t have to be all or nothing. We do have the television set and DVD player, so we can watch movies when we want to. I can watch something online if I want to. I have more control over what Lane sees.
Now when we watch something, we have to be intentional about it. We can’t just turn on the TV.
Another tactic is to leave the TV unplugged. When you’re reaching back there to plug in the TV, it gives you a few more seconds to think about if that’s what you really want to be doing.
