How to Survive TV Turnoff Week!

How to Survive TV Turnoff Week!May 3, 2014


Happy TV Turnoff Week ! This year the powers that be are raising the stakes, having renamed the yearly event to Screen-Free Week.

At So Ready Designs we are firm believers in the less is more philosophy (unless chocolate is involved), so we’ve elected to turnoff the TV, while leaving our other screens up and running.

When it comes to turning off the TV, we love it! Here’s why:

  1. More eye contact, less screen contact
  2. More family dinners, less TV dinners
  3. More real people chatting, less actors scripting

More importantly, we love turning off the TV because it wreaks havoc on our body image! Here are a few stats which make us cry:

What to do with your new found freedom from the TV and unrealistic body comparisons? Family dinners, fireside chats, neighborhood walks, card games, board games top our list of favs. When it comes to card games we find ourselves partial to Spoons aka Pig, Hearts and Spit. While they did not make the Top 20 Most Popular Board Games list, here are a few of our favorite board games:

  • Sorry
  • Apples to Apples
  • Boggle
  • Settlers of Catan

Have any favorites you’d like to share? We are always on the lookout for more chatting, more laughing, more fun with real people!
