This is something our parents have been telling us for years. As adults, we seem to forget about small tips like these that changed us for the better. When we are bored, we develop a habit of turning on the television. What do we actually gain from doing so? Most shows available are depressing. Most commercials are about food. Yet we wonder why most of us associate depression with eating (light bulb moment).
There are commercials and advertisements everywhere. There are ads on the internet, garbage cans, bus stops, televisions, they are everywhere! The one place you can go to escape ads is usually in a book! At most, a book will usually have an ad about a follow up book, besides that, you’re safe!
As humans we crave stimulation, we love to learn and grow. Yet most of us expect a fast solution. We go to people, movies, and television seeking knowledge we could get from a book. As a society, we don’t read enough. I truly put my heart, soul, energy, effort, and time into this website. Yet I still get people who would rather hear me tell them what I wrote out of my mouth, then to take the time and read.
We miss out on so much that the world has to offer by not reading books. We stunt our spiritual, physical, and mental growth by not reading! It’s time to recognize this as being an issue and do something about it! Turn off the T.V and pick up a book! Love you all! ^_^
Quote of the day: “I find television to be very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go in the other room and read a book.” -Groucho Marx
