Whether you’re self-isolating or on lockdown because of COVID-19, you’re not alone. Get through your queue, discover new flicks, nestle into comfort and even learn a new skill from your home with our four tips.
It’s time to check out those shows you’ve been saving for a rainy day — the ones you’ve added to your watch list or your mental list. Finally catch up on Game of Thrones on HBO Go or Fleabag on Amazon Prime Video. With Netflix or Hulu, you can fill your days with Bob’s Burgers or Shameless.
Figure out a plan of attack that fits your new schedule and your preferred streaming service.
As we practice social distancing and movie theaters temporarily shut their doors, the film industry is adjusting accordingly. Disney+ added Frozen II to its library three months early, and Pixar’s Onward premiered on Disney+ on April 3rd, despite hitting theaters on March 6th.
Major movie studios like NBCUniversal are giving the public online access to movies on the same day as their theatrical release dates. DreamWorks’ Trolls World Tour and Universal titles like The Invisible Man and Emma are a few movies available for a 48-hour rental. For most movies, you pay a premium rental price of $19.99 — but it’s a small price to pay to turn your TV into your own home theater.
Fight the urge to panic by queuing up comfort shows and movies that can keep you calm and laughing.
Find your happy place with Dorothy, Rose and Blanche in The Golden Girls, a black-and-white feel-good like I Love Lucy or the beloved comedy series The Andy Griffith Show. Or snuggle up with recent favorites like The Office or Parks and Recreation.
Find other ways to fill your days when you’re not consuming an endless montage of movies and TV. Some streaming services provide access to skill-building videos, art classes, yoga flows and meditation guides. Others offer services at a discount while they have the world’s attention, with articles and packages aimed at specific niches like the healthcare community, parents and educators.
With COVID-19 on your mind, quarantine could leave you restless and anxious. Reaching out online for comfort and entertainment can help ease those feelings.
Now is a good time to finally read that book that’s been collecting dust, create that workout plan you never had time to come up with and reflect with the help of a self-guided video. Take a step back, breathe and appreciate life.
