You Might Lose Touch With Reality
Watching one episode of your favorite show is just the right amount of escape from the real world (which can often be a little stressful). But hours upon hours of that show can start to blur the lines between reality and fantasy, and before you know it, it can be hard to know what is real and what is on the small screen. Do you ever wake up really depressed about something that happened on TV the night before? If it’s a short-lived emotional response that’s one thing, but when it gets out of control you’re dealing with a much deeper issue.
You’ll Experience Less Face-to-Face Interactions
The more you binge TV watch, the less time you spend with other people. And while TV characters can certainly be entertaining, they won’t be there for you when you need advice, need a shoulder to cry on, need to brainstorm new ideas or need to enjoy a little human contact. You need real, face-to-face interactions, and the more you binge on TV, the less you’ll get that essential personal contact you need, which could lead to feelings of isolation and anti-social behavior.
