5 Thoughts You Have While Watching The Lifetime Movie Network Channel

Ladies, we've all done it. Now it's time to admit the craziness that happens within our minds while watching these movies.


Its the middle of the summer, and you have nowhere to be. You find yourself blasting the air conditioning burying yourself in combinations of blankets and pillows. Your outfit of the day consists of an over-sized t-shirt with too many holes to count, optional pants, and a bun on the top of your head. Flipping through the channels among so many options, you stop on the LMN channel.

Suddenly hours have gone by, you have no idea what time or day it is. Next thing you know you have completely enveloped yourself in a kidnapping story that has you on the edge of your seat.

This is one of of many feelings that come from watching those beloved lifetime movies. Strange thoughts definitely occur when one engages themselves in these films that contain messed up yet predictable stories and cheesy acting. Once you take a step back and analyze these thoughts, you will understand how incredibly crazy and ridiculous they are.

Here are just five out of many ridiculous examples of thoughts that have crossed my mind from personal experience while watching the LMN channel.

1. "There is probably a serial killer in my bathroom."

This happens to everyone, right? Once you have watched enough of these bad boys on the lifetime movie network, it will have you thinking that a killer is right around the corner. Suddenly you will find yours elf cautiously watching your step at every turn and checking behind doors for absolutely no reason with a shoe in hand as a weapon. But hey, you never know right? Every little thing will have you freaked out after watching these movies.

2. "Aw...I hope he/she doesn't get caught."

Since when are we able to sympathize with criminals? Lifetime movie network has a way of going deeply into the background of certain killers and criminals. For example, you find out that the killer had a background of an abusive and drug addicted mother and is going after women who have resemblance to her just to take out his anger. Now this might be an extreme scenario, however, once you connect on a personal level with the killer, you will find yourself being a criminal cheerleader.

3. "Just one more movie...then I'll be done."

That's what they all say. The great and worst thing about the Lifetime Movie Network Channel is that it is a constant marathon. All day everyday. Basically there is no escape. So when you sit down to just watch one movie, it turns into five, and then all of the sudden your day is completely gone. And unless you are really brave, you will make sure no one finds out how you spent your day because this is just embarrassing.

4. "If I was this criminal, I would have done ____________ differently."

Once you've watched enough of these, you suddenly are an expert. That's just how it works. You are now able to shout helpful suggestions at the television in order to ensure the criminal's success. Because once again, we are on the criminal's side sometimes, right? Congratulations, you are a real creature to be feared!

5. "I knew that was going to happen."

You are a total psychic! Because the commercials give away absolutely no clues that will help you solve the murder mystery right? Solving such an obvious mystery always leads to a sense of pride unlike anything you will ever experience in your life. Solving a Lifetime Movie Mystery makes you a real sleuth!

So if any of these absurd and unrealistic thoughts have ever crossed your mind, fear not. You are totally not alone. People who watch lifetime movies are a breed of their own. These thoughts are all a part of the experience. Do not be ashamed. So go ahead and sympathize with that criminal, but look out for the psychopath in your shower!

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
