RUNNING HEAD: Media Fasting 1Media Fasting Reflection Assignment After completing this Media Fast assignment, I realized just how much media I truly consume on a daily basis. Most of the media is my choice, but there is still quite a lot of media
2that I have no control over. If nothing else, this assignment has made me question the amount of media I choose to consume and what types of media I should be consuming on a regular basis. I decided to complete this task Sunday morning, once I was sure that I had completed all necessary assignments, and informed my family about this project, so that they would not be worried by my lack of response.The first thing I realized while fasting from media, was how bored I felt at first, with not being able to watch netflix or other streaming channels when I woke up. I spend more time than Ipreviously thought watching television and movies to occupy my free time. It was really hard notto go on my computer and pull up a movie. After that set in, I had a brief moment of thinking that I could just go on my phone instead to text my friends or call my family. That brief second made me realize that media is useful as well, if only to talk to people that we wouldn’t have a chance to otherwise. I decided to go the gym instead of sitting around and doing literally nothing.
