A study from the University of Georgia found that people’s stress hormones were slashed after watching their favorite shows. Sure, meditation and yoga can also lower stress levels – but unless you’re really “in” to those things, feeling the pressure to do something “healthy” can prevent your stress from dropping. So, if you’re really into certain TV shows – don’t feel guilty anymore – enjoy! Because this study found that getting absorbed in the plot and characters of a show takes your mind off your own stresses, which can go a long way toward helping you relax.
