6 Ways To Relax When You Are Sick Of Watching TV

There’s nothing wrong with watching a good show, but sometimes that gets boring too.

6 Ways To Relax When You Are Sick Of Watching TV

This article is a response to "5 TV Shows To Binge That Aren't Grey's Anatomy."

Watching a new or even old show is a great way to relax after work, on the weekends, or even in between school assignments. However, sometimes you need to unwind, and TV just sounds repetitive and boring. Here is a list of relaxing things to do instead of watching TV that is still not being "productive."

Read a Book.

Not all of us are bookworms and that's okay but reading even for 10 minutes could give you that peace and quiet you are looking for. It does not have to be a lengthy fantasy novel or an educational self- help book. Anything that can get your mind off of life's busy calendar could be worth the time in silence.

Do Yoga.

As a person who just started doing Yoga within the last month, it has been a very enjoyable experience. It has been a great way to take a break from reality while doing something healthy for my body. This can also be a short daily routine you do every Moring or before you go to bed.

Listen to a Podcast.

A Podcast is a great way to get a source of entertainment without looking at a screen or really even anything. You can listen to a podcast in bed, in the bath, or outside. There are so many topics to choose from that can give you new insights on life or just a really good laugh.

Sit outside while sipping on your favorite drink.

Nothing warms the heart like your favorite beverage. For me that is my favorite tea or a nice homemade cup of coffee or on the real rough days a beer or wine. Leave your phone inside and just sit with drink in hand and enjoy the sounds of the outdoors.

Make a Pinterest board.

Dreaming about the future is a fun way to relieve stress and forget about your day-to-day worries. For me, that is making up Pinterest boards with great ideas that one day you can turn into reality. It can be anything from a hobby you want to pick up, new ways to decorate your home, or even ideas on how to be more productive. This can get you inspired without actually having to get the job done immediately.

Make your favorite dessert.

This could be a more Involved and active activity but definitely worth it by the end. Making your favorite dessert is relaxing because it can be really fun. You are not worried about the stress of making a healthy dinner and you can just unwind while indulging in a sweet snack. Your creative side gets to be involved without having a specific end goal besides having something yummy.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

To The Classes That Follow
Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
