Tips for the Perfect Binge Watch

Tips for the Perfect Binge Watch

No, I'm not sick. I'm just busy watching Netflix.

2016 is bringing us a lot of new shows. From “Fuller House” to “Making a Murderer” you can be certain that you will not be without a show to binge watch, and that’s not including all of the new seasons that are finally on Netflix (“New Girl” I have missed you and Nick’s grumpy-ness). That being said, not everyone knows the best way to binge watch a show, so here are some tips to make your binge watching experience so much better.

Clear your schedule.

Get everything you need done either the night before or that morning. Nothing ruins a relaxing binge watching session like remembering something you needed to do.

Get all kinds of snacks.

You will probably get hungry, and you don’t want to waste your time running to the store to get something to eat.

Ask friends if they want to watch with you.

If it’s a show that you and some friends love, ask them to join you. You don’t have to, but it is always nice to have someone there to hang out with.

Find the best place to watch.

Comfort is key, so you’re going to want to find the perfect place to spend your time. You’re also going to want to wear your comfiest clothes, so break out that favorite hoodie.

Pick a good show.

Everyone is different, so you want to pick a show that you like. Whether it is the drama filled “Grey’s Anatomy” or the classic comedy “The Office” find a show that you like.


After you’ve done these things, and whatever else it is you like to do before you binge watch a show, sit back and relax and enjoy your show!

10 Shows Netflix Should Have Acquired INSTEAD of Re-newing 'Friends' For $100 Million

Could $100 Million BE anymore of an overspend?


Netflix broke everyone's heart and then stitched them back together within a matter of 12 hours the other day.

How does one do that you may wonder. Well they start by announcing that as of January 1st, 2019 'Friends' will no longer be available to stream. This then caused an uproar from the ones who watch 'Friends' at least once a day, myself including. Because of this giant up roar, with some threats to leave Netflix all together, they announced that 'Friends' will still be available for all of 2019. So after they renewed our hope in life, they released that it cost them $100 million.

$100 million is a lot of money, money that could be spent on variety of different shows.

What Should I Do?

There's not always a right or wrong choice


Theodore Roosevelt said, "In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing." Sometimes, there's a clear right and wrong when you're presented with a choice. Often, the right choice isn't the easiest one. But something I have been so challenged by in my young adult life is the need to make a decision when there isn't really a right or wrong in the scenario.

A lot of times we joke saying, "I don't like making decisions!" This can be about anything from where you should eat for dinner or what you should say back to your boss's text. If you're anything like me, you consult people. A lot. I ask my coworkers for scheduling advice like, "Should I run to the grocery store before my workout or after?" Not that I think there's anything wrong with this, but it made me realize how nervous and anxious I can be about simply being wrong.

I think the warning Theodore Roosevelt gives in the above quote is so important in our journey through life. There isn't always going to be a black and white answer when an issue arises. But teetering between two choices more often means not making a decision at all. Stagnation is promoted by fear.

The best way to get over the fear of making the wrong choice, is just to make a choice. As simple as it sounds, the wrong choice isn't always as scary as you think. Often times, it's meant to serve you as a learning experience. Even if the wrong choice is painful, not to be harsh, but such is life. You will get the opportunity to prove that you have learned from your mistakes or allow someone else to learn from you. The important thing to remember is that the worst choice is no choice at all. Don't be afraid to be wrong or to be a guide for someone else.
