When I was a young adult, I was taught that watching TV is the easiest way to eliminate productivity. I avoided TV at all costs and just worked away. There were even times when I would dedicate 105 hours a week strictly to work, and I didn’t play at all.
I was overwhelmed. All my time was dedicated to work. I had come to find, that after a certain amount of hours, my productivity decreased, while my levels of stress increased.
As I grew older, I came to realize that TV was great. It doesn’t really destroy productivity at all. Instead, it provides an outlet to relax my mind after a long and overwhelming day of work.
Laying around and watching TV is my passion. I’m following my passion by committing to watch TV for at least an hour a day. I love TV.
In turn, my stress levels have dropped immensely while my productivity has increased. TV changed my life.
