I have just done what I like to call, ‘The Unthinkable’. I canceled my cable television (gasp!). Yep, a self- proclaimed TV-lover and adorer of trashy reality television; I’ve decided that the seventy-five bucks I pay each month for cable just isn’t worth it. Not when I have Netflix (which I automatically stream through my Wii), Hulu and various other sites on the internet that offer free television.
So what’s my motivation? It’s not that I never intend to watch TV again (ha! Yea, right), but I’m hoping that I’ll find new ways to spend my time rather than just plopping down on the couch and letting my brain go numb over Keeping up with Kardashians (which I love, by the way).
I can spend my new time playing with my very rambunctious kitten, Chloe; I can spend it trying to learn how to cook; I can spend my time writing; I can spend it reading; I can spend it with my wonderful boyfriend; exploring the various boroughs of D.C.; catching up with friends; or a million other ways. I’ve decided that this is going to be the start of something new. I’ve been wanting to change some things about my lifestyle for a while now (living healthier, eating healthier) and now I’ve got the motivation to do it.
This will be the start of something new; we’ll see how long it lasts.
So tell me, what have you done to improve your lifestyle? Even the smallest changes make the biggest differences.
