Effects of TV Viewing on Family
Some people spend hours watching TV with zero communication. They may watch tv in separate rooms from their family. The effect of TV viewing on family, is that sometimes their whole life is structured around TV. They have a need for TV viewing all throughout the day. The effects of this is that they may wake up in the morning and switch it on, and when it is time to go to bed they may switch it off. These people do not know what they are watching and the effects on the family is that they seem to have a need for something to hypnotize them. They have lost orientation in life and have no real goals. TV can prevent a family from being present in life and with each other. The effects of tv viewing on a family, may be to spending their time in a virtual dream world. They do little much else but watch TV.

However TV watching may lead to topics of discussion in the family about all aspects of culture and what is going on in the world. TV Viewing can be a good way of relaxing. There are comedies that can make you laugh. TV is not a bad thing in moderation. But people can become addicted to TV and it can have some negative effects.
- TV can be like food. You are what you consume and fill you self with. There is some positive stuff on TV. TV viewing is mental food for the brain. However the only trouble is that it can be largly junk food and a waste of time. Life is too short to spend 80% of you spare time watching TV.
- Some programs on TV can fill you with useless energy, negativity and depression. It amazes me how people give TV viewing so much attention. For example people watch negative soap opera’s that are filled with people arguing, and being depressed. Some of the negative effects is that they may then believe that this is what life should be like. It can fill you with with low quality energy, which may not help you in life at all.
- Personally I find it difficult to watch more that 5 minutes of TV. It does not have a good effects on me. I also can not tolerate TV as a background noise and would much prefer the silence.
One of the secrets is to reduce and eliminate negative content from your life. It means focussing on positive things. You absorb the energy of what you focus on. I am always thinking about my spiritual life, about love, or thinking on divine souls. Reading positive books and materials is always good, and surrounding yourself with loving people, or having a loving parter to share your time and energy with. Music and playing music is a good replacement for TV.
