- Tip # 156
Did you know that the television doesn’t need to be on 24/7?
For some people, that can be a completely revolutionary thought.
If your TV must be on 90% of the time, at least turn it off during meal time so that you can have real conversation at a normal decibel while eating. No shouting over the TV. No constant eye contact on the TV instead of each other. No, “wait a minute, I’ve got to see this part.”
Yes, it’s sort of a major switch for some people, but try it, you might like it. If you don’t like it, try it longer.
