Hope you all are well. This is an unusual post, a first of a kind for me, because I am reaching out within a few hours of starting to indulge in a bad habit. I have just started a T.V. show (Game of Thrones) bender and am wondering how to stop it, to catch it before it gets out of control.
I am in bad health and do not feel like doing the noble thing by working steadily in my spiritual practice today, which I foresee spilling out into several days of watching my ego's favorite television show, and the television show is definitely not a good impression to take in. How do I stop and make myself work spiritually?
Or maybe the right question to ask should be more about how do I take some time off healthily.
I use the fact that I am so sick and weak and feel so badly to "justify" this unhealthy leisure, but I do not know how to stop it. I don't really want to be watching the show, so I am praying to God to show me what to do to get out of it. This post is the best I have got at the moment.
If you could provide some guidance on this issue, I would appreciate it. I can surely speak for many when I say that we are very grateful for your help and sacrifices. Wishing you all many blessings.
