Reality TV On Demand service hayu shares some tips on how you can avoid turning into a couch potato while watching your favorite entertainment series:

  • Choose your spot wisely! This is a very important rule yet is often forgotten. Find a place where you can comfortably watch at a suitable distance. This means you wouldn’t have to squint to see the screen, and you can sit while being able to stretch your legs. This space should also be well ventilated and with adequate lighting.
  • Stretching is a must. Make it a habit to stretch regularly, such as at the end of every episode. Stretch your arms and neck and stand up and walk a bit. Change positions regularly so that you have good circulation. There are many websites showing stretches that you can do. If you’re into yoga, this is a good time to do those poses.
  • Munch to your heart’s content! Compliment your viewing experience with your favorite go to snack or even a full meal! Whatever your cravings, nothing says complete binge-watching experience without some good food.
  • Drink your water! It’s easy to forget to drink when you’re enjoying what you’re watching, so make it a point to always hydrate especially in this hot weather.
  • Keep track of your sleeping habits. When you’re so engrossed with what you’re watching, you can lose sight of your regular waking hours and end up disrupting your sleep cycle. Make sure to monitor the time you allotted for your binge marathon sessions so that you get enough sleep and have enough energy for the day.

Keep all these pointers in mind so that you can comfortably enjoy your favorite shows and still be in your top shape as you check out these compelling and exciting shows on hayu!
