10 Shows To Binge While Having The Flu

I have had the flu recently and binging shows is the way I got through it.

79

Having the flu sucks! You can't get out of bed, everything hurts, and the boredom could honestly be the worst part. So, I have compiled a list of ten amazing shows that my friends and I binged while we had the flu.

"Grey's Anatomy"

What an addicting show! "Grey's Anatomy" can distract you from all the FOMO you are feeling from missing out on the world while you are stuck in bed. The plot is amazing — don't get me started on all the hot doctors!

"The Office"

"The Office" is easily one of the funniest shows I have ever watched. So, it will definitely distract you from feeling like you are dying. The flu sucks, why not laugh through it!

"Criminal Minds"

If you like mysteries and suspense you will love this show. Also, the seasons are super long and there are eleven seasons! So it will more than get you all the way through the flu!

"Dexter"

First, if you are into serial killers and their thought processes you will be addicted to this show! I've watched it like six times. It is super entertaining and thrilling. I would more than recommend you watch it!

"Don't Trust The B*tch in Apartment 23"

Great show! Very addicting. My friends and I all binge it together. The story line is genius and the actors are hilarious. It is also pretty relatable and easy to follow.

"Rick and Morty"

This show is a masterpiece! It is so funny and makes you think. I have to admit it is a bit inappropriate and strange but definitely worth the watch!

"Riverdale"

This show has the best plot. So many cliff hangers that have you bitting your fingernails! There aren't a ton of seasons to binge and you can probably finish it pretty quickly. I did, it was amazing!

"Queer Eye"

They came out with a new season! spoiler alert, it is amazing! I love this show. It is so entertaining and makes you feel good while you watch it. Perfect for when you are sick.

"Friends from College"

I didn't think this show would be as good as it was. I finished it in like two days! I was addicted and you will be too! Be warned, it is a new show so there are only two seasons, so your binge will be short-lived.

 "American Horror Story"

Addicting to say the least! All of the seasons are new and captivating stories. I am pretty sure everyone who watches this show appreciates it. Also if you are trying to pick one season to watch I would definitely suggest coven.

Having the flu is awful and you feel gross. So, there is no harm in treating yourself to some Hulu or Netflix. Sit back and relax, that is the best medicine. Also, drink water and try to eat! I hope these ten suggestions help you get through it and if you don't see anything on here you like, I would suggest just taking a guess on a random show! Usually, you will be surprised.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
