Pigeon of Discontent: “I Spend Too Much Time on TV and the Internet.”

Posted Sep 03 2012 2:37pm

Each week, I post a video about some Pigeon of Discontent raised by a reader. Because, as much as we try to find the Bluebird of Happiness, we’re also plagued by those small but pesky Pigeons of Discontent.

This week’s Pigeon of Discontent, suggested by a reader, is: “Too much internet and TV time.”


I meant to mention in the video that my sister is a TV writer, which makes me even more aware of how good TV can be, when it’s really good.

How about you? Have you found ways to keep TV and the internet in check? They can add a lot to happiness, if they don’t crowd out other, more happiness-inducing activities.
