I heard it for years from my mother…..”TV will rot your brain”! So far my brain hasn’t melted to my knowledge and I have only seen things that regular aging will do to a person. We all know what negative things come out of watching too much TV and it is all just common sense. First if you watch TV all day and do no physical exercise, you will become unhealthy. Also, watching things that are mostly negative will have a large impact on your mood. Now that we have that all cleared up, lets focus on some of the good things you can get out of watching TV that will benefit you in your life.
Great Things You Can Get Out of Watching Television
One of my favorite things besides watching musicals on TV is the travel channel. I get that watching exotic places instead of visiting them is not as amazing. For a person on a limited budget though I get to travel to some of the most beautiful places and learn about different cultures. I have learned so many different things about different locations based on watching the Travel Channel. Watching these exotic locations has inspired me to travel outside of the United States to see different areas. Also, I feel like more of an adventurous person when I watch different locations.
I love some of the series you see on TV and also originals. This has also inspired my imagination as well as given me hours of entertainment. Also, other people I work with and know watch the same episodes. This has been great conversation starters to meet new people. I was at a Coffee shop and met my current partner talking about one of the current TV series. There is a lot of passion these series and it gets your involved in what is going on.
Educational Shows and Entertainment
Some may say there is nothing educational on TV these days, but I disagree. There are more and more educational videos out there than ever and you can learn just about anything. There is cooking, DIY projects, Fitness, and History. Not only is it entertaining, I am engaged and that is the most important thing. Television is here to stay so why not find some programming that you and your family will enjoy.
The best thing about Television is it is changing in so many different ways. Now if you missed your favorite show, you can stream it later in the day or even back it up. You do not have to work around the TV’s schedule. It is so easy to find what you are looking for and we can watch anything we want at any time of the day. Also, we can find any TV programing online. The most important thing now is to just figure out what you want to watch because there is not enough time in the day to see all the programming out there. I would love to hear what your favorite TV series is below.
