Everyone has their own self-care routine. Maybe it’s journaling, exercising, meditating, deep breathing or being in nature. There is always that one thing or set of things that connect you with your body, mind, and present moment. With everything going on in the world right now, life can feel scary and overwhelming. There is a lot of uncertainty, many unknown factors and serious questions.

We all should be focusing on the positive and looking for the blessings. Even though it may be hard, there are always things we can control!  While we all are going through this experience, with more time at home, it’s important to spend our time wisely! Some of our favorite shows can be a therapeutic escape from reality at a time like this. I’m not suggesting you stay up all night binge watching, but the power of TV and its ability to transport us to different times and other lives is invaluable. If you are having anxiety now, it’s good to use your available resources to empower yourself.

Maybe it will bring you to Europe between World Wars, to fantasy kingdoms or suburban wonderlands. Whatever show you watch, television has the incredible ability to make us laugh, cry, dream, and FEEL. I personally recommended watching some Schitt’s Creek or Love is Blind for a good laugh. When we connect to a show, we feel personally involved with the love triangles, problems and growth of the characters.

Choosing to watch something POSITIVE AND UPLIFTING will always boost your mood. Take your mind off what’s currently going on in your life and broaden your perspective. Who doesn’t love traveling, seeing new cultures and religions- all right from the comfort of your own couch! Shows like: This is Us, Little Fires Everywhere, Vanderpump Rules and Masked Singer– will all leave you feeling all the feels. It always makes me feel better to cozy up with a nice cup of tea and watch a comedy or reality show! Even in times like these, we all have the power to focus our energy on what we can control, including what we watch on tv. Whichever show you choose to watch, make sure you are mindful and actually making yourself feel better!

Remember, it’s very important to let go of what we cannot control. We all deserve to have that break and allow ourselves to relax.
