Title: Insights into the impact of Binge-watching

Abstract:

Binge-watching (likewise called binge-viewing) is the act of watching entertainment or informational content for a prolonged time span, typically a single television show. Research shows that watching consecutive episodes of our favourite show may excite our brain, and subsequently, interfere with our ability to rest. Squeezing in just one more episode can make us keep awake until late at night, leaving us feeling tired and drained the next day. Over time, this might hurt our wellbeing in numerous ways. Among the concerns researchers have raised are decreased physical inactivity, sleep problems and fatigue, blood clots, heart problems, poor diet, social isolation, behavioral addiction, and cognitive decline. Like gambling and other behavioral addictions, binge-watching activates the part of our brain responsible for “reward” functions, producing dopamine and making us feel good. Over time, though, our brains produce less dopamine from the similar degree of movement as we build up a level of resilience. When it becomes rampant, viewers may start to neglect their work and their relationships with others. Attributable to these outcomes, different methodologies can be planned to overcome the suffering from binge-watching.
