Balance entertainment time to include reading news from print, reading a book and listening to music in equal parts.
But if you are super busy as a person, realize binging drama and entertainment especially if you are lonely and have to fight this time alone. Is not a bad way to deal with those dead spots.
The thing is a person have their greatest leaps in productivity during boredom states.
Also, remember to love your self and take care during these times. Schedule a bath and me time, take a book in with a glass of wine, tea, some sweet juice and let the hot water sooth the tired soul.
Bodies in motion stay in motion, but that is the yin to humanity, one also needs the yang of silence and peace.
When solo, I prefer reading while eating. If one is to eat and watch TV two wrongs make a right, eat dessert while your mind gets it's own dessert.
Great self aware piece!
