Perhaps go out for a walk or garden, it seems like you really need to.

I don't believe tv has to be passive though. You can watch shows and gave discussions about them with others. You can watch news, sports, music , documentaries. It's also good for entertainment too and no different to listening to music really. I had a colleague who used to frown upon tv but thought going to watch theater ok. What's the difference really both are watching stories unfold only tv is available and affordable to the masses. Obviously if someone was watching tv all day every day and not doing anything else I think there are other issues behind it.

For those with no TV are you big radio listeners? I'm just asking because I am curious about how you get information on current affairs or know that something is going on in the world and to look it up online. Or do you get a news feed of sorts? Our TV is only on abc for kids during the day and at night it is usually just to watch our favourite shows. When someone asks me about something that's going on in the news I'm usually like what are you talking about?
I know there are people out there that don't own a TV by choice and tbh I'm like . But I am fascinated by this topic. The civil parts that is.

That's a good point, I suppose theatre is no different, and the common practice of tweeting during current affairs shows and voting during singing contests etc is probably a lot less passive... I guess the main concerns are raised by the American society of paediatrics for children under 5 etc and that perhaps for the developing brain there are potential effects being elucidated which are negative.
I agree about tv being affordable, cable is ridiculously expensive, however in some countries such as the US one must actually pay to receive news updates and the like, which has to make you wonder about why that must be and whether news is something which should be free to all etc. Before this of course there was the radio and the whole family would sit around it, but I think the academic concerns come from the rapid display of pictures and it's interaction with the visual system and neocortex, and one must wonder if our naive neural networks as seen in babies would up or down regulate various aspects of their physiology as a response.
