Binge eating media - SELF CARE FOR NURSES #18

How many hours of TV do you watch a day?

How long do you spend on social media every day?

How much time do you spend consuming "news" programs and content?

Most of us would have very little idea.

And yet time is the most precious commodity we have. Why aren't we more deliberate with how we spend it?

Are the things we are spending it on giving us anything worthwhile in return?


Pay attention to the media you are consuming. Ask yourself these questions:

Is the content empowering you to have the life and experience you want to have?
What is the ratio of truth vs the perspective you want to hear?
What are they selling? Is it something you want to buy?

TV, social networks, and websites aren't inherently bad. Just make sure that the exchange you are making - your time and money and attention in trade for their content - is a trade that works out in your favor.

Consume your media with purpose. Don't just binge on it.
