Wednesday Wisdom - Secret to Happiness

"For every hour a day you spend watching TV, you’re about 5 percent less likely to be satisfied with your life."

According to David Niven, Ph.D, author of The 100 simple Secrets of Happy People, television encourages people to make unfavorable comparisons between their lives and those they view on TV. The rich and beautiful characters in television dramas are living dramatic lives; exciting things are happening to them. The viewer's life pales by comparison. Dr. Niven recommends watching only programs you really want to see and turning off the TV at other times.
