Not news but TV is the devil.
If I don't turn it on, I'm good. All day, productive, creative, thinking, doing. But God forbid I turn it on just for a few minutes to watch reruns of my favorite sitcoms (Frasier, Everybody Loves Raymond). I'll be stuck there for way too long, wasting the precious time I have each day to do other much more important, creative, and necessary things.
Breath. OK, now that I'm at my desk and the TV is off I'm ready to do things.
I hope you're having a great day and that you are doing things! :)
