TO HAVE OR NOT TO HAVE A TELEVISION IN THE BEDROOM?

WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY

Sleep experts all believe that a bedroom should be a place for sleep and relaxation with no TV set in the room. Watching television in the bedroom might tempt you to stay up later and you may then find it harder to unwind after watching something stimulating. The problem is that often we don’t intend to spend hours watching but the lure of the screen becomes too strong to turn off. This even happens when we are really tired and should be sleeping.

Quiet evenings can provide time to meditate, evaluate, and assess our day. Reflecting on our days can help us learn from our mistakes and grow as humans. Some experts believe TVs and computers emit toxins and electromagnetic fields which can disturb sleep. The static electricity created by electronics also attracts a lot of dust, encouraging allergies.

Sometimes the best conversations with your partner happen at the end of the day when you are both relaxed. In that time you can talk, share, love, plan, dream and connect. But not if you have the television on. Studies also show that couples with television in their bedrooms have far less sexual intimacy than those who don’t. Surely the people you love and who need your attention are far more important than watching poor quality television.

Reading is better for your brain than watching television. It accesses the creative centres of brain and requires it to stretch and learn more.

Every morning we begin with a clean slate and a new opportunity to be the best we can be. Televisions may direct our thoughts negatively and set the stage for the rest of the day. We should be conscious of what we allow to guide our thoughts.

Research shows that small children with televisions in their bedrooms often score lower on school tests and are more are more likely to experience sleep problems.
