So my epiphany is that television is bad for you.
ok, so most of you already knew that, but some of you didn't. I already knew that, but its been a long time since I felt it so strongly. I obviously knew it wasnt good, I had suggested to my mother a few times that she try not watching television, to which I got a response something like 'its how I relax after work, when I am tired from a big day', to which I replied 'maybe you wouldn't be so tired if you didn't watch so much television'. Now as I write that I realise it is not put in a way that is likely to help her change her behaviour, even if it is true. To be fair to myself I have also said how much more time would be found to follow interests if less tv was watched.
As I awoke and vowed not to watch television I found I woke up full of life and energy, enough to write most of this post at 6am. I have aso found I've had more energy and 'mental space' the last few days, and have een reminded of the so called relaxing effect of television, that many people report actually just make you feel tired.
So, onward to a clearer mind and more time to pursue the flourishing of humanity.
