Self-care isn’t always yoga and meditation. Especially around the holidays when extra friends and family members may pair with additional time off from work (hopefully), sometimes gathering around the television with loved ones is an excellent opportunity to recharge and make memories. For others, escaping to a back bedroom with a tablet or phone to catch a few episodes of a television show can be just the distraction you need from the bustle of holiday guests.
Choosing the right TV show is an important aspect of this coping skill, and psychologists are here to help! This NBC news article shares some recommendations from professionals and breaks down the options with information on their streaming service availability.
Pair these episodes with some stretching breaks and maybe even some yoga for a balanced and healthy holiday season.
