Cold Turkey

So I’m cutting back on television because it makes me anxious. Granted, paperclips make me anxious, but this is different. It shouldn’t be too hard to wean myself since I don’t actually own a television. I’ll still watch the handful of shows that I really like when they come out once a week on Hulu. But trolling for hours of mindless entertainment – cerebral packing foam, really – leaves me feeling more exhausted. When I get home from work, all I want to do is turn on some cartoons, but I don’t feel any more relaxed after watching them. Conversely, when I read after work, though it takes more effort at first, I feel better all around. Revived, even. So yes to books, no to Family Guy.
