No TV? No Problem!

Spend some more time outdoors during Turn Off the TV Week.
Turn Off Your TV Week

The week of April 25th to May 1st, 2005 is Turn Off the TV Week. So what are you going to do without all your fave shows to keep you occupied? How about getting a life? Here are a few ideas to get you started!

Take a Hike

Get outside and get in shape. Take advantage of this new-found free time by climbing a mountain, chasing some squirrels of just playing outside at your local park. Not only will you be away from the TV while you're outside, you'll also be too exhausted to watch Survivor after all the fresh air and exercise. <

Shop 'Til Ya Drop

Instead of watching what the celebs are wearing on Entertainment Tonight, why not set your own trends? Get a bunch of your peeps together and hit your fave vintage store or local mall. Since you don't need to worry about rushing home to catch American Idol, you can take lots of time to try out different looks. Use this week to reinvent your style and you'll look smokin' hot in front of the tube next week!

Read a Book

OK, so you've turned off the TV this week but you're still not up to getting off the couch. No prob, just pick up a book. You'll get all the action, adventure and intrigue of your fave TV show, without letting your brain slip into neutral. What a concept!

Board Game Bonanza

Pick up a few new board games or dig out some classics and organize a board game championship battle! All you need are a few friends, a few games and a few snacks. You can judge the championship by most wins, most points or whatever you like. If you're more into card games, why not play a little Pokemon since you're not watching it on TV.

Surf the Net

If you're going through serious screen withdrawl, the Net is the place to be. You can play online games, check out the stats on your fave teams or chat with your pals. Just make sure you don't end up spending hours online - the point of Turn off the TV Week is to turn off all those screens and turn on your life!
