Things to do Instead of Watching TV

There are lots of things to do instead of watching TV, and with the weather warming up as spring finally arrives, it’s time to get out there and do them! Why would you want to spend time inside, sitting in front of the TV, when the weather outside is so beautiful? That includes spending too much time in front of a computer. There are so many activities to do instead of watching TV, some of which take a while and some of which you can do in just an hour or two. Stretch your limbs, give your body some stimulation and your mind time to relax, and start getting away from the TV by doing these fun activities!

  3. I never watch TV (nor do I want to) I do watch a lot of TED talks or YouTube videos on my computer though so maybe that’s cheating?
    I find my blog, my studies and reading take up any spare time I have 😊

    Listen to music, go to theatre, hiking, coloring, reading, walking on the Greenway, working on my WIP and blogging (those do mean being on the computer), volunteering, just getting out of the house (spending time at the mall, go to a bookstore). I used to knit- and eventually want to go back to it.

    Hi Garima,

    It’s like not eating the same meals all the time when there so many other things out there.

    Thanks,

    I have not owned a television for over 20 years!
    I raised two fabulous adults without electronics of any kind!
    Life is way better without it and too short to waste sitting and watching anything other than children or wildlife!

    Completely agree with you. I also find sitting in front of tv is a complete waste of time . It’s always better to do something productive or learning new things 😀

      Right?
      Even when the weather is not cooperating ~
      I bake, sometimes even make complete meals for myself and my older sister…

      (I currently live with her and her out-of-state-husband) Working on creating the peaceful and beautiful retirement home and acreage they have worked (and continue to do so) so hard to achieve!

      Now that I am no longer working (for right this second at least) outside of the “home” as an Animal Control Officer ~

      I am taking down an old barn and creating a new gazebo-type outside family/dining/laughing/buzzing area!”
      Of course ~
      As Always ~
