You can't spend a lot of time in front of the TV - the psyche is disturbed, chronic fatigue develops, working capacity decreases, and health problems begin. To avoid this, you need to watch TV correctly.
According to statistics, a person spends about 3-4 hours every day watching TV, and some even more. Such a pastime is typical for people of different ages, both for old people and young people. Unfortunately, overlooked is the fact that television has adverse effects on human health, physical and mental. Undoubtedly, such a prolonged viewing of programs is harmful.
Harm from viewing
TV negatively affects many centers of human life: vision, metabolism, immunity, joints, central nervous system, cardiovascular system, gastrointestinal tract, etc. In addition, sleep disturbances can be observed, working capacity decreases, fatigue increases, and the psyche is significantly suppressed.
Based on all this, it is necessary to take note of some recommendations in order to avoid health problems. Following these simple rules will ensure the safe viewing of your favorite TV shows.
It is recommended to watch TV with the lights on. The power of the light bulb should be approximately 40-60 W. Care should be taken to prevent glare from artificial lighting on the TV screen. As for the distance, it should be at least 3-4 meters, and considering modern home theaters - 7-8 meters. In this case, the viewing angle should be no more than 60 degrees from the center of the screen.
Speaking of the time allotted for watching TV, it should be noted that it fluctuates in, depending on the age. So, preschool children are prescribed to spend no more than one hour a day in front of the TV, schoolchildren - 2 hours a day, and adults can watch programs for 4 hours a day.
In the late hours of the day, it is better to refuse to watch TV programs, especially those that cause strong emotions, no matter what - positive or negative. Nothing should cause sleep disturbances. During commercial breaks, it is recommended not to switch channels, but to walk around the room, switch your attention to something else, and do small things.
Another useful tip is that you cannot eat or drink in front of the TV. This is harmful to digestion, as there is a risk of overeating. In addition, the keen viewer absorbs food, chewing it poorly.
All these recommendations should be followed regardless of what kind of TV you have at home - "soviet", LCD or LED, despite their advertised safety. Simple rules will prevent disruptions in your health.
