I wrote this post as part of my participation in a blog tour on behalf of Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc., the makers of VISINE®. I received compensation to thank me for taking the time to participate. However, all opinions expressed are my own.
While fall is perfect for being outside in the beautiful weather, it is also equally nice to be wrapped up in a blanket by a fire binge-watching your favorite shows. I know Kevin and I have spent many fall days and nights over the years watching our favorite movies in a series or starting a new show. We are actually currently watching a new show and trying to get through 5 seasons to catch up.
On top of that, we have two shows that we are currently watching that our parents are watching as well. With them being four hours away, it is kind of fun to still watch the same shows and be able to talk about them.
Pick Your Line Up
There are so many different awesome shows and movies in a series that you can watch. Pick your line up and your watch partner. This can be your husband, friend, roommate, you name it. Seventy-one percent of binge-watchers frequently watch multiple hours of content with at least one other person, according to The VISINE® #ScreenOn and Tribeca Film Festival Binge Appeal Survey* so grab your person.
Stock up on snacks
Snacks and drinks are a MUST! Be sure to stay hydrated with water and fun other drinks. Popcorn is always a great movie snack, and candy, of course. If your watching through a meal, make sure you prep before hand, or order in.
Clean your blankets
You will need nice cozy blankets, and maybe even pillows to keep comfy. Having fresh smelling, clean blankets, makes for a much better experience.
Make Your Fire
Its fall and winter is upon us, so be sure you have everything on hand to make a fire. I love watching shows with a fire going in the background. It just makes everything so “homey”.
Also, if your anything like me, you may want to grab some VISINE® as well. I have chronic dry eye, so a lot of screen time means more dry eye issues. I make sure that I have VISINE® around for these moments so that I can prevent a flare up. It has been so incredibly helpful and lets me watch shows without having to worry about my eyes hurting later. It’s no secret that people love to binge-watch and VISINE®, the must-have screen accessory, found that there are correlations between screen consumption and positive social behaviors in a recent national survey conducted with the Tribeca Film Festival. Despite the positive that comes from being a screen connoisseur, the survey also found that more than 1 in 3 binge-watchers (37%) say their eyes frequently get dry or irritated when they binge-watch. VISINE® can provide relief to your dry and tired eyes during your binge-watching session.
