    Oct 5 2012: Not sure about the mobile and internet but watching TV is a kind of passive activity it might not be healthy over a long run as ti does not involve physical activity but uses the least of your mental effort i think.

    But you can always work on finding something that is better to do than these things to keep you occupied. This is what i always do. Come what may you just have only 24 hours a day. If you are currently watching 4 hours of TV and are able to identify a new high quality activity and borrow time from watching TV and put it in this new activity some 2 hours, your problem gets solved. The key ere is high quality activity, should at any cost replace low quality activity.
