I've done this many times. It's become a ritual in itself for people to switch the TV on. Try going a few days, or even a day without switching on the TV and see how you feel. Why the urge to switch it on? Gonna' miss your daily programming? Don't like the thought of sitting without the noise you've been conditioned to need? I honestly believe TV has had a massively detrimental effect on the human psyche and destroyed the way we perceive the world and each other. Sean Parker (ex-President of FB) recently admitted that FB is "ripping apart the social fabric of how society works" FB was launched 14 years ago. If FB is indeed ripping apart social fabric, what is the extent of the damage TV has caused? Something to be mindful of.
