When we watch tv our brains go into an alpha state, a highly relaxes state in which we take in all information that comes to us. Television is a brainwashing tool. Plain and simple. The only way anyone will know that is if they give it up. Giving it up was the best thing I ever did. I don’t know if anyone can be awake and watch tv news on a regular basis. I started writing about not watching tv a few weeks ago, but I thought no one did anymore except for old people. I figured everyone else was watching netflix and using Tivo, so I ended up making the post about how tv is ruining our old people.
