3 Reasons For Watching Reality TV
It might just melt our brain but it’s our favorite guilty pleasure!
From time to time, I hit a wall from watching exciting television shows that are in season, or post-binging a Netflix series. Between my season’s favorite shows (How to Get Away with Murder, Grey’s Anatomy, House of Cards, The Daily Show – to name a few!) I find myself having nothing to watch. At these sad, and lonely times I dive into the world of reality television. Real Housewives, the Kardashians and their spin-offs, you name it and I’ll take a look. Some of my friends really pick on me for this, but here’s how I justify it:
1. Reality TV is a great way to unwind. You don’t have to pay much attention to the story line, so it’s nice to just not think for a moment.
2. It helps my stress levels. If something is bothering me in my personal life, watching silly drama on TV is a huge distraction. Sometimes I need time to forget what’s been going on IRL, watch some reality shows, and get back to it.
3. It’s background noise! If I’m cleaning up my room and don’t feel like blasting music, I put on a show and just let it play. Also helpful for some who needs to listen to something before sleeping, however some fights can get noisy.
