Hooray, they’ve finally put the new season of your favourite TV show on Netflix! This is exactly what you’ve been waiting for. I’m thinking you’re planning a big binge-watch session, am I right? Don’t worry, I won’t judge, I binge-watch shows all the time, it’s actually “IN” these days, it seems! But, I’m also thinking that you’ve always wondered just how to become a Pro Binge-Watcher? Well, no need to look any further, I am about to give it to you in just a few steps! Brace yourself, this will be intense 🙂
Zoey-valuated Steps To Becoming a Pro Binge-watcher:
Time – You will most definitely need to set aside some time for this. Hopefully a day when you’re off work/school, etc. These obligations could possibly get in the way of your binge-watching.
Location – Having a comfortable place to sit/lounge is very important. You will be spending a good amount of time in this place, so comfort is a plus! Also, crucial to your watching… good quality WiFi. Getting interrupted over and over again to fix the internet connection? Not fun, trust me.
Food – Fuel is important. Now this part is dependent on how hardcore you wanna be with this bingewatching thing. If you really don’t want any distractions, stocking up all food/snacks beside your seating area is quite helpful. This will minimize the amount of times you need to get up to go grab things from the kitchen. Now, drinks. This is where it gets even trickier. Obviously, you’re gonna want to have drinks with you as well, but too many drinks will result in too many bathroom breaks. So, really this one is a judgment call. You know your bladder, so you can hopefully estimate how much you can drink throughout your binge-time. Good luck with it!
Focus – This one is hardest for me. Time to put away those cell phones! With your Android/iPhone right beside you, it is pretty tempting to glance at it every few minutes to see what’s happening with your friends, social media accounts, etc (hopefully it’s not just me who this is an issue for…) But this activity will definitely distract you from what’s most important… your show. So, try your hardest to put that phone aside and focus on your television.
Now, sit back and relax, because you’re in for a ride! What I love most about binge-watching TV shows… getting engrossed in the plot and characters’ lives. Crystal Reed who played Allison in TeenWolf says it best. I leave you with this:
“There’s something to be said about sitting in front of the TV and being removed from your own life and just pushed into another one.” Crystal Reed
