You Could Experience Health Issues
Binge watching usually means you are sitting for an extended period of time, and you are often losing sleep in an effort to maximize your viewing time. In addition, extended periods of time staring at a screen can be harmful. All of those factors combined could lead to mental and physical health issues. According to Robert Glatter, an emergency physician at Lenox Hill Hospital in N.Y., in a piece for USA Today, suggest that “being inactive for long periods of time also raises the risk of a slew of health concerns including metabolic syndrome, a group of conditions that increase the risk of heart disease and diabetes.” You could also experience dizziness, vertigo, elevated heart rate and more.
