The Awful Truth About Television
By Katherine Westphal
Read this little e-book and you will never look at your television set in the same way again. Backed with scientific research, "The Awful Truth About Television" examines the manifold ways in which TV affects your weight, your family relationships, your acedemic achievements,your mental and emotional states, your community, and much more.
Strictly controlling your viewing time may be one of the most important first steps to take when switching to a more holistic lifestyle. Not only can you GAIN up to 4 1/2 hours per day (depending on the amount you currently watch), you gain the money that used to go to cable, satellite, and the TV tax. You also generally gain a more focused and positive mindset. You can use this extra time, money, and attitude to fuel other healthy lifestyle changes.
If getting in control of your TV watching is a good first step towards a healthier, happier, more holistic lifestyle, then understanding the negative impacts of television is a critical first step in controlling your TV. Most authors which examine the impact of television on society only focus on the trashy content. While the sex and violence on TV can certainly have a negative impact, the full awful truth about television is much worse.
