You'd be happier without your television. Sell it on Craigslist.

A quote by Martin Seligman, from his book Authentic Happiness.

In the nightly choice between reading a good book and watching a sitcom on television, we often [make the wrong choice] – although surveys show again and again that the average mood while watching sitcoms on television is mild depression.

    True happiness is only in the Self. You’d be happier without TV, Internet, “good” books etc…

    Totally agree. Plus, television is full of advertisements that are intended to make you feel unhappy with yourself so feel the need to buy something.
