Week 1, Epilogue: Cutting the Cord

It’s been an interesting week.  Removing the television as a constant media backdrop to my time at home has meant the following:

  1. Because I’m far less likely to ignore a film I’ve paid money to view, I’ve had to actually relax when I relax and genuinely engage with it.
  2. Because I am far more selective with my choices when I am paying for a film, the quality of my media intake has improved greatly.  In the last week I have watched only three things:  A documentary on Sudanese refugees, an animated short about a young girl growing up in Iran and the global warming documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth.”
  3. Having removed a constant distraction, my brain has been more fully able to engage with my tasks at hand – as a result, I have been more productive, more creative and had more time to truly rest as I’ve been able to get through my work faster.
  4. I’ve also read a book and a half — a thing I’ve not done in a week in as long as I can remember!

So, the verdict is, while there are downsides to not having immediate access to television news, and while I will miss the whitenoise on some level, I am giving up Cable Television permanently.  The benefits far outweigh the disadvantages.

I’m holding off for one week on starting my next challenge, as I have been struck down by the CRUD and won’t be able to give it the concerted effort it deserves.  Next week: Cosmetics.  Which I suspect will be more challenging than it appears.

    Awesome!
    Also, I don’t tend to watch TV either all that much- prefer my media to come from this glowybox here instead of the one in the corner- and I get all my news from the interwebs as well. And, having spent a summer dissertating on the things, I believe I can say with absolute conviction that aljazeera.net/en is absolutely the best place on the interwebs to go for awesomely balanced and sensible and thorough news. Also, they do fantastic documentaries. Probably not so useful for the local stuff, but they rock for the global fix :)
