4 Ways to Binge Better This Holiday Season
Between family time and food, one of our favorite parts of the holiday season, and one of the best ways to relax, is catching up on shows. There is nothing like indulging in a good old-fashioned binge-watching session. In the golden age of entertainment, it can be hard to keep up with every new show or movie that's released, so every now and then, you need to treat yourself to a day of catching up.
The Daily Dozers binge watch in style, usually from a nifty adjustable base and a plush, new mattress. Here's how you can step up your binging:
Make a List and Check it Twice
Before you press the play button, get organized! As any expert binge-watchers know, time is of the essence, so make the most of yours by writing up a must-watch list. Whether you're a connoisseur of comedies or true crime is more up your alley, make a list of the shows that speak to you. A good pro-tip? Check out the ratings and reviews of the picks on your wish list.
If you're gearing up for a holiday watch-a-thon, make time to get comfortable. Prep and equip your viewing area with all the fixtures needed for extended television time. Prefer watching from bed? A few pillows can go a long way, so get fluffed up!
We recommend grabbing pillows and your softest blankets before you settle in. For added coziness, consider an adjustable bed to help you find the perfect viewing position with the touch of a button. Last, but not least, pick the proper attire. Whether it's a set of footie pajamas or a big hooded sweatshirt, we recommend suiting up for your comfort style. Can you say dress to un-impress? ?
For long watching sessions, there is one thing you just can't do without: snacks. When hunting for good treats, resist the temptation and try to stay away from too much junk food. Some great snacks for binge-watching include fruit, nuts, yogurt, and dark chocolate. These foods are good for providing sustainable energy (energy you might need to power through that extra season) and will keep you from feeling full and bloated.
When you're starting a new show, you may feel pressure to finish every episode in a single sitting. (We get it, the FOMO is real!) Research shows being well-rested can help improve memory, so a good night's sleep is essential for retaining information. You may think an episode is worth losing sleep over, but remember, it's more important to rest and recharge. (Spoiler alert: the shows will still be there! ?)
