Is Your TV Watching You?

With the emergence of the latest innovations in technology, the couch-potato-career also takes a boom. The releases of flat-screen LCDs, top-of-the-line plasmas and LED HDTVs offer a breakthrough in the entertainment industry. Yes, relaxation now means Lazy-Boy-sitting style, gobbling a handful of popcorn and gluing your eyes on the tube for loooong hours.

People who on average spend six hours each day watching TV can expect to live 4.8 years less than those who watch no TV. Put another way, every hour of TV reduces a sedentary adult’s life expectancy by about 22 minutes.” – British Journal of Sports Medicine, Britain

Indeed, all too much is bad. So time to hit the OFF button on the remote control and exercise your body (and mind). Talk to your family, go for a walk outside or visit your old-time-bookshelf like this.

Happy weekend folks!
