Your job is to work through these feelings to free yourself from electronic-entertainment reliance.
Lose the reliance and you will start to realize other aspects of your life that you have been neglecting, such as planning for your future, your family, your house, your friends, your kids or your health.
But then I started using this time to think over so many things in my life. In the old days, there were only three, four, or five channels, which meant you had to go entertain yourself in some way because watching TV was too dull.
But, over time the TV has gained more channels, music is easier to get, and video games have become more fun than real life.
It is not a new thing, but it is far more ingrained and damaging than most people give it credit for.
You are going to find out just how bad you have this “no silence” condition when you try going without TV, the Internet, music or video games over a weekend.
A starting point may be to wean yourself slowly away from the TV, the Internet, music and video games.
You can start slow and wean yourself off them over time.
Just how uncomfortable you become is unclear, but you may be in for a very big shock as you realize just how lonely and uncomfortable you feel.
You may find yourself talking incessantly on the phone, to which people will become annoyed because they have TV to watch, video games to play, Internet the explore and music to listen to.
