Are you watching too much reality TV?

Too much reality?

For the past few weeks, one of the main headlining media stories on a daily basis has been about one of the high rating reality TV shows. Now don’t get me wrong, I enjoy this kind of television just as much as you do. The drama, the excitement, the life changing stores but my question to you today is; “are you avoiding your own life by watching a little too much reality TV?”

Consider that watching the top reality TV shows every day will take at least 2 hours out of your day, a significant amount of time to be dedicated to supporting other people’s lives. Now, one of the main concerns my clients present with, which is at some level preventing them from achieving their health and fitness goals as well as not allowing them to dedicate time to other interests is “not having enough time”. While reality shows may be entertaining, they are rarely acting to motivate or support you in achieving your goals, goals that will ultimately lead to an increased sense of satisfaction and well-being in your own life.

So, before you give the best hours of your day to watching someone else life, perhaps it is worth considering what else you would like to be doing with your life and dedicating some more time to that because sure as day, the reality shows will be back tomorrow, the next day, the week after that and yes, again next season.
