We all know what a TV binge is these days. It's such harsh language! This kind of addictive lingo is part of our culture, and it's so easy to apply it to most everything. Entertainment provides an escape from our reality in some ways and can serve as an educational tool as well. I consider having the time to watch a few episodes in a row a luxury.
According to a 2013 Harris Interactive study, close to 62% of U.S. adults watch multiple episodes back to back, so we do have to factor in that if it's the kind of brain-rotting, toxic television consumption, we might need to monitor. These days, there is some amazing television choices and it comes down to whether we are digesting episodes that are like a healthy green salad or episodes that are like a huge bag of Doritos.
I suppose an indicator as to whether we are over-watching, is if we find ourselves saying things like, "I will just watch one more," and three hours later we are still parked on the couch. If we combine back-to-back episodes and back-to-back snacks, it's time to take off the sweats, hit pause and go out to play. Otherwise, happy watching.
