10 Reasons to go on an Info Diet

1: To Free Your Mind- Your mind gets bombarded with advertising. Food, clothes, movies, liquor, etc. Without this clutter, you can think more clearly. And think for yourself.

2: To Elevate your mood- Constantly reading about death, destruction and worldwide tensions can only weigh you down. Can current events really be your current events when your not directly affected by it? Kill the noise.

3: To Be Healthier-Without the constant burger, fries, and junk food ads, you’ll probably have less cravings for such things. You’ll have time to actually cook real food. And you have time to walk off your meal instead of vegging out in front of the boob tube.

4: To Follow you Bliss-Sitting in front of the TV all day and night does nothing for you. You’ll have more time to pursue that hobby you always wanted to. Always wanted to paint? Take dance lessons? Start a novel? Start an investment club? You’ll see you have all the free time you need to get it going.

5: To Save Money- Without clogging up your time juggling TV, radio, magazines & newspapers, you can keep up with rentals and fees. I cant tell you how many times i returned something late and paid a late fee because of trying to juggle too many things. Less late fees and subscriptions = more $ in your pocket!

6: To Have A Cleaner Home- Procrastination and distraction kill productivity. Period. Turn off the tube and tackle the clutter. You’ll have less to clean later on, and you just might find those keys you lost last week!

7: To Be Closer To Family & Friends- Instead of hours of mindless T.V. & internet, you can have a phone conversation with someone. Or even (gasp) go visit someone face to face. Reconnect with family and friends. You won’t regret it.

8: To Be Smarter- Instead of listening to the same songs over and over again, you can use the time to listen to self-help tapes or podcasts. Amaze yourself with learning a new language or dazzle your employer with the product knowledge you studied while on the way to & from work.

9: To Go Green- When you unplug the T.V. your saving electricity-thus saving $ and helping the planet. BTW, literaly unplug. FACT: Some appliances still use up power when you turn them off. So unless you need to save certain settings on it, unplug it at night or simply when not in use.

10: To have peace and quiet. Having a radio or T.V. on all the time can be like a jabbering person talking to you all night. Turn it off and get your brain working again without the constant yammering. You will sleep better without the “subliminal” messages while you sleep.
