Life is meant to be lived, not watched. To get started living your own life rather than watching others live theirs, consider its impact on your life.

It is influencing your worldview.

Anybody who has ever been a policeman, a lawyer, a psychiatrist, or a doctor will attest to the truth that television does not accurately portray their life. In almost all aspects, television rarely depicts the world and life accurately. Too much television results in disillusionment about what to expect from the world around us. This can most commonly be seen in people’s expectations of love, romance, and sexuality.

It is costing you money

Every TV brand including Xiaomi, Sony and Samsung has their respective power rating. Irrespective of this, the more you watch TV, the more you use electricity. Many people spend thousands of their earning per year just paying for the electricity to power their television sets. Add in the cost of cable/satellite bills, DVD’s, movie subscriptions, peripherals. This may be a whole lot costly than any other expense that is incurred in any household.

It is influencing your spending habits

If you think you are too smart to be influenced by the power of advertisements, you are wrong. Corporations do not spend trillions of dollars in advertising hoping to influence you. They spend trillions of dollars because they know they will influence you. It is taking you away from the real people all around you. The characters on television are not real. They are thought up in an office building and given life on a piece of paper. In contrast, you are surrounded everyday by real people living real lives. These real people are facing real problems. They need you. And you need them.

It’s isolating 

The results of research presented earlier this year at the annual Conference of the International Communication Association in San Juan, Puerto Rico, found that feelings of loneliness and depression were linked to watching television. While the research didn’t conclude that TV watching caused the issues, researcher Yoon Hi Sung said in a statement that binge-watching shouldn’t be viewed as a harmless addiction; other experts say increased use of electronics can further isolate individuals or promote antisocial behavior

It impairs your capacity for rational thought

TV oversimplifies reality. It presents subjects in a matter of minutes and everything is nicely wrapped up at the end. This harms clear thinking by conditioning you to expect that most problems have a simple, clear solution that can be implemented in 60 minutes or less.

It could damage your relationships

The more you believe in popular portrayals of romance on television, the less committed you may be to your real relationship, according to research published several years ago in the journal Mass Communication and Society. That ranges from unrealistic expectations of a spouse to seeing the “costs” of real relationships such as the loss of time or freedom – as being higher, which could undermine what’s happening between the two of you in real life.
