For the last week I just haven’t switched the TV on at all in the evenings. I don’t miss it and I’m amazed what I can get done of an evening now I’m not wasting so much time.
I usually turn the TV on as soon as I get up and I watch the news while having my fist coffee of the day. I was loathe to give this up because I’ve always found it such a relaxing start. But now I want to try meditating first thing in the morning in addition to my usual after work session. So if I can keep to this habit all of next week and not switch the Tv on at all on weekdays I shall consider this goal done. 2 weeks ago
How I did it: I just made sure I kept myself busy. Mainly by learning things I've wanted to but been too "busy" watching T.V. to ever learn.
Going for walks daily also helped because I felt more motivated to do something more than just sit down all day.

I found the best way for me to watch less T.V. was to work towards gaining skills that I’d been meaning to for ages, such as creative writing and learning how to hand sew my torn clothes. 3 weeks ago
How I did it: I reduced my cable package down to basic cable.
I consciously chose not to turn on the tv as background noise when I was in the room.
I chose music for background noise or replace tv activities with other productive things. Read how I did it… 3 months ago
I never watch TV unless it is at my mother’s house, then I remember how much I don’t miss it! 4 months ago
I tend to fall into the dark pit that is Netflix, and I find myself procrastinating like crazy. I’d like to limit myself to one episode (of whatever I’m watching) a day.
It’s not that I think tv is a complete waste of time, it’s just that I could pretty much spend a whole weekend in bed binge-watching stuff, even though I have a lot of projects going on right now that I’m really excited about. 5 months ago
and less tv working…only watching Sleepy Hollow, 1/2 news and some sports but no movies and tv shows. Last movie to watch on tv is Some Like it Hot 5 months ago
Compared to most people, I really don’t watch a lot of tv. Well, I go through spells where I will if I have a TV series I am into or something. Where I ‘waste’ my time is on the Internet. 5 months ago
