TV Or Not TV

That is the question. What's your take on having a TV in your bedroom? I don't know if it's a good idea or not. I'm leaning towards not. I think that your bedroom should be the most peaceful room in the house...where you can read, reflect and sleep. We have too much media in our lives and need more peace. There is a TV, literally 5 steps away from my bedroom door. Are we that lazy, to not just walk those 5 steps? I think there's even a study out there where having one in the bedroom is linked to being overweight. I think I've answered my own question. I do that a lot sometimes.

definitely not. i think if I didn't have a TV at all there would be very few things I would miss. too much white noise.

I'm so not into a tv in the bedroom...you're right, there's too much media in our life and we need more peace. Ironically, I'm writing this in my bedroom and Rustom's watching War and Peace in the livingroom (the Audrey Hepburn movie based on the novel).
Anyways....

I agree with your thoughts on not having a Tv in the bedroom.
It is meant for sleep and refreshing and love and comfort and sweet dreams, not to fill our minds even more so with the debris of the world.

To be able to answer your own question shows good thinking ability.

My latest debate is whether or not to have a TV at all. Its so hard as there are some shows I like and JPs hung up with the news.

My bedroom is TV free. I do have a radio. I watch too much TV in my waking hours, and don't need that mess to creep into my unconscious hours.
