A big TV turnoff, that is.
April 21-27, 2008 is TV Turnoff Week. Starting tomorrow, millions of TV gazers worldwide will dare to hide their remotes and cut the cord for seven days. Past reported results are astounding. Many have experienced:
- increased creativity
- more time with family and friends
- better quality sleep ... and more of it
- additional time spent enjoying the outdoors, often walking
- a greater sense of calm and relaxation
- the ability to sit, focus and read a book—something many had not done in years

TV Turnoff Week is every week for me. I don't watch TV at all (unless it's a DVD, something on YouTube, or something on at a friend's—I'm not anti-TV). In these times, it's difficult to unplug entirely, and there is some quality stuff worth seeing.
However, there is no way I would have time to blog or be involved in my other creative pursuits if I filled up my minuscule free time with TV watching.
What are your top priorities in your life? Is TV one of them?
Want to write a novel? Turn off your TV and use that time for writing instead. You may have a first-draft completed before you know it.
