Drinking Wine and Watching T.V.
The dinner dishes are done. The kitchen is clean-ish. There is no place to drive to. This is the time when I find myself habitually turning on the television and pouring a glass of wine. Wine is a depressant. T.V. is mind-numbing. So I fall into a lower vibration where not much gets accomplished. I usually watch movies. Often, it’s a movie I’ve seen before since it’s usually on the Turner Classic Movies station. Sometimes I watch a singing competition. If “sitting is the new smoking”, my body is deteriorating as I sit. I drink from one to three glasses of wine depending upon how early I get started. I tell myself this is fine because my only destination for the night is my bed.
My life has not become unmanageable as a result of my drinking. However, lately I’ve been wondering about the improvements to my health and well being I would see if I make a change. There are so many healthier ways to spend my time in the evening such as reading, writing, exercising and meditating.
Tonight I will start my experiment with eliminating wine from my evening routine until at least the weekend. I will spend more time in other parts of the house away from where the television is located. I have beautiful candles in my living room that I won in a horse show competition and are never burned. The furniture in the living room is more comfortable than that near the television. I have a sauna in my bathroom I should use more often.
I expect I will feel better not only from eliminating a depressant substance from my system, but I will likely sleep better, as well. I may even lose some weight. Stay tuned…
