HomeFun.co shared their recommendations today on how to enjoy television with the family in a healthy way. Keeping in mind the fact that almost everyone owns a television nowadays and that each member of the family watches their favorite programs, HomeFun.co is creating awareness about how watching television can be fun for the whole family, even when done in moderation.

Browsing through various dish network channels or spending time watching home entertainment, can be fun for the entire family when regulated. Yahoo! Health has come up with four reasons that television can be unhealthy if a considerable amount of time is spent watching television. Home Fun agrees that the sedentary lifestyle can increase risks of getting certain disease, but also doesn't feel that throwing the baby out with the bath water is the only way to go.

HomeFun advocates spending time with the family. They recommend that television can be a great way to connect with your kids or your spouse, but also feels that some structure is necessary so that that is not all the family does together. HomeFun stated, "Find a show that the whole family enjoys and make a night of it. Make it special. Other nights regulate how many hours per night the T.V. can be on. During the times when the T.V. is off get the whole family together to play board games or a fun game of hide and seek with house rules."

The European Heart Journal discovered that people owning a car and a television had 27% more likelihood of suffering a heart attack than people who possessed neither. Published for the European Society of Cardiology by Oxford University Press, the European Heart Journal is a fortnightly peer-reviewed medical journal. It publishes material related to all aspects of cardiovascular medicine, both clinical and scientific.

With people leading increasingly sedentary lifestyles these days and spending quite a few hours watching television each day, HomeFun.co discussed healthy ways of incorporating television viewing for the whole family.
