Tonight after work I went to the living room and sat on the couch like I always do. My normal routine is to pickup the remote control, turn on the T.V. and flip it to some channel so I can have it playing in the background. I typically would glance at the screen every once and awhile but really focus on something else. I thought to myself, “Why do I do this?” It is a habit I had since I was a teenager. It adds no value for me when I do this. Tonight I just left the T.V. off and noticed all the ambient sounds of my house. Very soothing and a great departure from my normal routine. I just entertained myself reading a book. The T.V. was never turned on tonight. But when I do turn on the T.V., I will be actually watching it and not having it on just to have it in the background.
