I gave up Facebook! Last year I gave up soda and with the exception of one occasionally, I don't drink it anymore. I gave up FB in 2011 for Lent and it was really liberating to not feel as though a social network had control over me - since it's become a time suck again, I decided it was time. Maybe for good!

Yes, TV can be really difficult to give up. Not only weather channels, you cannot watch the News. So if something happens like a hurricane or an earthquake, you are never quite sure what happened. Newspapers give pictures, radio gives descriptions, but only television really takes you there.

But not watching television does give you time to pray and to meditate. It gives you time to telephone friends and relatives, or to write letters or do crafts. It is surprising how much time you find you have.
