#20 Turn off the TV

How many hours a day do you spend in front of your TV?

Any idea what you could do with that time?

Statistically, the average American spends 4 hours and 45 minutes a day in front of the TV, that's 33 hours a week, almost as much as a second job. If you have health problems and spend a lot of time at home, chances are you end up spending even more time feeding your brain with stuff from the little box. Yes, I know it's an easy way to relax and slip away from your worries for a while, but imagine what it would do to your health if you spent half the time you spend in front of the TV on learning something new, exercising, or hanging out with people that are good for you?

What would you rather be doing?

Growing fat and dying young, or trashing the TV set and finding a new hobby?
