Stuck at home watching the same three TV shows on repeat? Need to spice up your social distancing routine with a new show to binge?
Due to the recent spread of COVID-19 and the current world state, social distancing is more important than ever. We are being urged to stay home and maintain a distance of at least six feet between us and other individuals, all in an effort to limit the damage done by this virus.
While staying home alone and living in sweats may seem ideal on the surface, a continual pattern of this lifestyle can actually be harmful to our mental health, seeing as we’re hardwired to need a certain level of social engagement. Hence why streaming services are getting perhaps more attention than they did before.
Movies and TV shows can act as a supplement for social connection, as they offer us a glimpse into real life and human connections that we can enjoy vicariously. We experience the show with the characters. Accordingly, watching TV shows becomes even more important to our lives today.
At Paradox, we are doing our best to help you get through these hard times by offering simple ways you can add some fun and positivity to your day. Hence, I have compiled a list of the best TV shows on Netflix for your binge watching needs:
Although watching Netflix by yourself, in the dark, with a surplus of snacks and blankets can sometimes be the epitome of self-care, it is still important to have human connection. Due to social distancing and a need to stay in doors and away from groups of people, it can be difficult to maintain a healthy sense of social and emotional wellbeing. We need to put in extra effort to reach out and socialize through the technology at our disposal. That’s where Netflix Party comes in!
Netflix Party allows you to watch Netflix with a group of friends, while still respecting social distancing. Simply send out a link invitation, and your friends can join what you’re watching in real time. You can even send messages on the platform, which helps to give a more realistic sensation of actual social connection. It’s the perfect hack to break social isolation and still stay safe and at home. Read this NY Post article for more information on how to set up a Netflix Party with your friends.
