I Quit Netflix and Was Surprised by What Happened Next
I love the fact that nowadays we can simply type in a show or movie title and be able to stream it just minutes later. Gone are the days of trekking to Blockbuster to rent films or waiting for your Netflix DVDs to come in the mail. However, having so much access to shows and movies through streaming sites such as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime has become maybe a bit too convenient.
According to research, on average Netflix users binge-watch up to five hours consecutively in one sitting. I personally can vouch for this as I pretty much watched the whole series of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel in one day earlier this Summer (amount of time glued to the screen aside – it is SO good!). You always think that the next episode will be the last episode you watch, until, before you know it, you're on the last season and it's 2 a.m.
So, this got me thinking: What would I have time for instead if watching any form of television was not an option for one week? Well, the answer is a lot. Read on to see.
