Swap Square Eyes For One Of These Hobbies

By Features Desk

Wednesday, October 11, 2017.

Did your mother use to tell you that you’d get square eyes from watching the TV all the time? Well, that might not have been technically true, but it’s certainly good to have a break from the TV screen every now and then. There are a lot more other hobbies you might want to start that can help you develop new skills and knowledge, most of which you can’t get from TV.

Ready to turn your square eyes back into circles again? If so, then you should consider taking up one of these creative hobbies.


Ok, so playing on a computer or games console might also entail looking at a screen just like watching TV, but it’s a much more active process and can really benefit you. Not only that, though, but there are some games that can help to promote your mental agility. You can improve your skill by playing live casino games and there are also many apps for smartphones that give you the chance to challenge yourself with puzzles and mental games. If you want to start to get fit, you might even want to buy a Wii so that you can play the Wii Sports game, which has been praised for its focus on fitness.


Do you wish that you had more time to read books again like you did when you were a child? Well, you will find plenty of time for reading if you try to cut down on all the TV you watch! If you haven’t read for a few years, you might want to ease back into it by starting off with some magazines. You’ll have built up your attention span in no time and will soon turn to books! Take a look at the Goodreads website for some recommendations if you aren’t too sure which books you should read.

Life Admin

Ok, so taking care of your life admin isn’t exactly a barrel of fun, but it is something that needs to be done. And many people find it incredibly easy to slip behind on this kind of admin, especially when they spend their evenings watching TV. So, why not spend an hour going through your emails or working on your accounts this evening rather than channel hopping again? You’ll be amazed at how quickly you get through your to-do list by doing this!

Keeping In Touch

How often do we say that we will keep in better touch with our loved ones but then go for months without a call or an email? For most of us, this is a very regular occurrence. Instead of switching the TV on tonight, wait to watch your favorite show or movie until you have dropped a line to some friends or relatives who you haven’t spoken to in a while. They’ll be really happy to hear from you, and it gives you a great chance to catch up!

As you can see, you don’t have to sit in front of the TV every night!
