Is this for real? Is an academy that is all about hustling going to tell you the benefits of being UNPRODUCTIVE?
As unbelievable as it may sound, this is actually happening. Fasten your seatbelts because this is going to be one hell of a ride.
Before that, let us first make it very clear that the post is about the literal meaning of “Netflix and chill”. Not what you millennials have in mind.
Is It Okay to Be Unproductive?
Yes, it is okay to be unproductive. Of course, it is a given that you shouldn’t be unproductive all the time. But being unproductive and doing fun activities is not only okay but important as well.
One such activity that we are going to discuss is watching Netflix. Contrary to what people believe, watching Netflix is not killing your productivity. If consumed in moderate amounts, Netflix can, in fact, increase your productivity.
The Importance of Being Unproductive
As already mentioned, being unproductive is important. If you think being productive all the time isn’t going to affect your mental and physical health, you are wrong.
Letting your body relax and taking some time off work to unwind your mind is important. And for this, you need to be unproductive.
Moreover, when you keep working, you restrict your mind from trying new things. The lifestyle and routine become tedious and that leads to burnout. Being unproductive breaks that cycle and gives you the time to refresh your mind and be creative.
When you keep working, you end up eliminating a lot of things that used to give you happiness. Doesn’t that mean you are kind of giving up on your happiness? Even if work gives you happiness, it does not mean that you will give up on everything else.
Introducing unproductive activities into your productive routine can be beneficial for you. It will give your body and mind some time to relax and after that, you can expect it to work even better.
Benefits of Watching Netflix
- Staying in bed
- Using social media
On social media, you may start by talking to your friends and then start binge-watching reels. Given the negativity on social media platforms, you will come across negative content. This can affect your mind and mental health which is the opposite of being unproductive.
The idea of being unproductive is to do something that is not productive and relaxing.
Watching Netflix would let you choose from a variety of genres. You can always choose something that is less triggering and more entertaining. Moreover, when you binge-watch something, your chances of overthinking are pretty less.
Here are a few benefits of binge-watching Netflix:
- Helps you relax
- Reduces stress
- Helps you take your mind off something
- Can stir your creative side
- Enhance your productivity
- May improve your skills and knowledge
