The Boob Tube The Deadly Distraction
turn off the tube, save big money and time - here's how and why

A University of Vermont study found that overweight participants who reduced their TV time by just 50 percent burned an additional 119 calories a day on average. That's an automatic 12-pound annual loss. Crazy right? But, check this out. Not only will you lose weight and be more healthy, you will save a lot of money and greatly enhance the quality of your life.

TV is expensive! I don't just mean the cost of cable either. As a habit, it is, in my opinion the worst and most costly bad habit you could have. Not only are cable bills expensive, some people pay over $100 per month or $1,200 per year, but so are the flat screen TVs we rush to buy. But the biggest cost by far is the absolute waste of time. Let me ask you, how much value do you receive today for the TV you watched a year ago? My guess is the answer to that is none. Consider this:

  • Yearly Cable/Satellite Bill: $1000-$1500
  • Time WASTED per person: 1825 HOURS
  • Cost of Time Wasted at half minimum wage: $7300

$1000-$1500 Per Year in Cable bill savings which could allow you to:

  • Start a home business
  • Pay off a credit card
  • Pay for music lessons or a tutor for your kids
  • Take a small vacation

Gain 1825 Hours Per Year which could allow you to:

  • Earn an extra $14,600 per year at minimum wage
  • Get your pilot's license
  • Get Scuba certified
  • Start a business
  • Spend more time with family
  • Learn to play the piano
  • Learn a second language.

Gain back your mind from advertisers which allows you to:

  • Control spending and become free
  • Reduce Stress and be more peaceful
  • Lose weight

Gain time with the family as a family. You could:

  • Have healthy family dinners together
  • Have family game night
  • Start a family garden
  • Teach the family how to cook or learn how to cook
  • Get caught up on chores
  • Actually talk to one another

However you plan to spend your save time and money is up to you. But next time you pick up the remote give it a second thought and maybe crack open a book or grab the kids for a walk.

Have an excellent day.

I picked up an ice cream maker on Amazon for about $50 bucks. What a great deal! Most ice cream has around 14 grams of sugar per serving. This version has about 2. Your kids will love it. I used blackberries since they are all over the Pacific Northwest but, you can use whatever fruit you please. Next I am going to use cherries from Hood River and peaches too.
