While we’re stuck at home all day, it might be tempting to binge watch our favourite Netflix series from dawn ’til dusk, and let the day slip away without achieving things we want or need to do (such as… read a book, get chores done, get some exercise, or study something new!).
But by making a few small changes, you can create a future environment that will enable to to have a healthy and productive day… here’s our easy hack!
You know when you finish an episode, and the next one starts playing in 15 seconds without you even having to lift a finger? That’s a recipe for a binge watching marathon. But here’s the good news – you can easily go into your Netflix settings and turn this feature off, so that you have to make a conscious decision before turning on your second, third, fourth episode… Watch Stu’s video above to see how to make this simple hack.
So you want to watch ONE episode and then get on with something productive? No problem.
And it’s that simple! Your earlier habits of turning off autoplay and hiding the remote, will lead to the desired behaviour of going for a run or doing the chores. The Habit before the habit – magic!
