When my husband and I decided to toss our TV about five years ago, it took us awhile to get used to. However, within a few months of going TV-free, I couldn’t stand being in a room where the box was blaring. I literally couldn’t think straight.
And I often wonder if that’s how most of our culture lives – with the inability to focus. We are a culture obsessed with distraction. It’s why I call a lot of media “Weapons of Mass Distraction”. We are so accustomed to entertainment, to always having something to watch, something to listen to, something to fall into and something to zone out with.
