Addiction to Entertainment

Have you ever been the victim of a robbery? When someone steals something from you, you feel violated and vulnerable. And you become much more vigilant!

Without realizing it, we all allow a certain kind of thief into our lives every day. We allow time thieves to rob us of the precious hours, minutes and seconds of life. These thieves are subtle, but they are extremely dangerous. When they rob you of your time, they’re actually robbing a slice of your life!

What are some of these time thieves?

Another time thief is our addiction to entertainment.

While we all need a certain amount of healthy entertainment to stay sane, our culture has gone to the extreme. Untold hours are frittered away by web-surfing, Facebooking, Instagramming, video-gaming, You-Tubing, and Twittering! Recently I read about someone who was addicted to watching “cat videos” online. Yes, hours spent watching cats do entertaining things (who knew?)!

What about you? How much time is unnecessary stolen from you because of an addiction to entertainment? What healthy choices will you make about the use of your time?
