Is Binge-watching Good or not?
The streaming age has transformed everything about the way people consider television. We no longer have to postpone a new episode of our favourite show because multiple entertainment businesses are releasing complete seasons and series at once. This has led to a unique concept known as binge-watching.
Binge-watching is the act of steaming multiple television episodes in just 1sitting and it is becoming more and more familiar with all the streaming choices available to us, including Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon Video, among many others. We can stream these services on our TV or another device, such as a tablet, laptop, or cell phone.
But as wonderful as all these choices might sound, health experts alert that because people are substituting time once spent exerting, socializing, and sleeping, they are now expanding their chance for numerous serious health ailments, including depression, cardiovascular disease (heart disease), sleep issues, and behavioural addictions.
But, on the other hand, for many others, binging might just be resting. After a lengthy day, a few hours of the show F.R.I.E.N.D.S. which is 1 of the numerous popular plays on any streaming platform can reduce the pressure of a long day, literally. An analysis followed 240 people via their binging and registered their cortisol levels, the so-called stress hormone. They reported that for some people that their cortisol statuses decreased during their binging adventure. There are many other pros that people claim like it designates social norms, etc.
But If I have to get to a conclusion, then I would say that with binging, there is not an ideal “good” or “bad” response. Like numerous things, the key is restraint.
Watching TV can be comfortable, but only if it does not stop us from exercising, taking care of our health, and fulfilling our social obligations. Binge-watching in restraint, once in a while, might even do some good. What are your thoughts on it?
