Take control of your life by reducing cable tv

Are you one of those who let your private time be ruled by what’s on television? Are you one of those who just doesn't seem to have enough time? Then, this might be something for you.

Television, a huge time consumer

We’re constantly bombarded by media and other attention seeking channels in our life. Everyone wants a piece of you. And the thing is – these channels receive your attention. At the cost of your precious time.

Television is a perfect example of one of these channels.

You surely can choose what channels you want to watch on television, but you very rarely can choose what you want to watch on those channels. Fact: others choose what you should watch. And they choose whether you should watch the movie, the tv episode, or the commercials.

If you think at it, you spend countless of hours watching stuff you don’t really care about. It is time for you to make a change.

What you can do is choose when to watch and what to watch.

Here’s what you can do instead of just watching what’s on television:

  • Record what you think is most interesting and do something else meanwhile. Watch what you’ve recorded when you have time.
  • Download episode of your favourite show. There are perfectly legal ways to download movies and tv shows.
  • Hire movies at your local movie rental store. These stores are sometimes hard to find because of the Internet, but they still exist.

This way, you get to decide when to watch your favourite movie or your favourite tv show. Plus you’ll probably be free of commercials, which is worth more than you actually think.

Also, you'll have more time on your hands, meaning you'll have more time to do the things you think are important.
