5 Feel Good Shows To Binge-Watch This Summer
Start writing a post

Sometimes, with everything going on in the world, it can feel overwhelming and exhausting at times. It's hard enough to step away, with politics and world news being at your fingertips and that can make even the happiest of us feel stressed. Here are five shows you should watch when you need a pick me up.

1. Queer Eye (Netflix)

I think everyone already knows about this show (how could you not? It's all over internet). For real though, whenever I'm feeling down, watching the Fab Five help people build their self-confidence up always brightens my mood. The first three seasons are available on Netflix and the fourth season will be available on the streaming platform on July 19.

2. Unspouse My House (HGTV)

Okay, this is a new one but TRUST ME ON THIS! Unspouse My House is basically like Queer Eye meets Property Brothers. Interior designer Orlando Soria helps newly single/separated people reclaim their space after their ex moves out. Literally unspousing the house. Soria is not only an incredibly talented designer, but he is a wonderful shoulder to lean on. I highly recommend watching. It can be streamed on the HGTV app or on the network Thursday nights.

3. Nailed It (Netflix)

Baking shows are great and all, but I know in my heart of hearts I could never craft the wonderful creations seen on Food Network. I struggle with mini muffins. Nailed It is a show for all the people like me who really love baking but are just not good. I don't think I've laughed so hard at a baking show in my entire life.

4. Say Yes To The Dress (TLC)

Sometimes you just need a good cry. But not in a sad way, in a feel good happy way. When the bride finally finds her dress, it's hard not to shed a tear. Even if their bridal party is, opinionated for lack of a better word, there's almost always a happy ending with everyone hugging and crying happy tears.

5. Lip Sync Battle (Paramount)

Did everyone see Tom Holland's lip sync video from 2017? Where he dressed like Rihanna, slayed "Umbrella" and redefined my entire life? Do I need to give you more reasons to watch than that? This show gave us Tom Holland....in thigh high boots....singing Rihanna's infamous 2007 hit "Umbrella."

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

I Got Clean At A Very Young Age, And It Honestly Saved My Life

At 18, the world looked so much different for me than it did for most other 18-year-olds that I knew.

Emmie Pombo

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I Watched 'The Social Dilemma' And YIKES, I'm Terrified For The Next Generation's Mental Health

Millennials can remember a time without online social affirmation, but we may be the last ones.

The Social Dilemma / Netflix

I've been in a media job for the entirety of my professional career. From part-time social media internships to full-time editorial work, I've continued to learn how to tell stories, write catchy headlines, and keep people interested. I believe working in media is a big responsibility, as well as a valuable way to advance our world.

On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.

I’m OK With Hooking Up On The First Date, But That DOESN'T Make Me Easy

2020 has been a crazy year. And yet, women being comfortable with our bodies still seems to be a big topic in mass media.


I'm an adult. There is no reason I can't have consensual sex with someone on the first date. It does NOT make me easy, and it does not mean I'll have sex with just anyone the first time I meet them.

I was so excited to vote in my local primary election in August. I eagerly researched my local candidates, combed the newspaper for profiles and policy positions, and shared infographics on Insta about voting deadlines. I considered myself a keen voter.
