Netflix and Chill…

These dark nights make the perfect excuse (not that we really need one) for a good ol’ fashioned Netflix binge.

Now I love Netflix, all those documentaries, dramas and comedies waiting for you – but the sheer amount of choice can be overwhelming sometimes.

That’s why I have taken the time out to give you a shortlist of my must-watch series…

  1. Black Mirror – this series really is funny, scary, dark and thought-provoking all at the same time AND you can watch any series at any time, there’s no need to watch in any order! Oh… And there’s a brand new series – so get cracking.giphy4
  2. Making a Murderer – if you’re seriously slow to the party, you better catch up fast. This documentary series, about Steven Avery, is due to release it’s 2nd series any time now…giphy5
  3. Stranger Things – seriously retro and seriously cool! Stranger Things is a wonderful creation, science-fiction and hide-your-eyes-horror meet with an insanely clever story line and awesome nods to only the best retro sci-fi films. Now, you have two equally incredible seasons to catch up on!giphy2
  4. F.R.I.E.N.D.S. – maybe not completely new, but still completely perfect! With the complete collection of ALL 10 seasons of the sitcom, this classic is perfect for those nights when there just isn’t anything on TV…giphy3
  5. American Horror Story – definitely not one for everyone, but awesomely clever nevertheless! With it’s dark, gruesome and quite frankly horrifying twists and turns, this series is sure to please anyone looking to get their teeth into something very different. You have been warned!

If you believe I’ve missed out the best and biggest series, then feel free to comment below your own suggestions – the more the merrier!

5 Tips To Help Fight Monday Morning Blues

So, it’s Sunday evening again, the weekend has flown and you’re left sat on couch wondering where the time went. Have a go at following these simple steps to try and banish those Sunday evening and Monday morning blues.

  1. Clear your work space – before leaving the office on a Friyay just clear your own desk. This will allow you to walk into work feeling free of last week’s shenanigans and ready to take on a new week.
  2. Write things down – sometimes there is nothing better than sitting down and clearing your mind of endless to-do lists, freeing up some space in your head for all the stuff you truly enjoy.
  3. Make the most of your weekends – whether it’s spending time with friends or family, doing some exercise or just relaxing, make the effort to use of every second of your weekend by planning and doing different things – although this is definitely easier said than done…
  4. Get yourself organised earlier – make sure that just before you sit down with a well earned take-away or glass of wine on a Friday evening, that you have prepped your work bag ready for the start of the working week. This way, you will completely switch off and relax.
  5. Change your perspective – instead of looking at a Monday morning as another day to drag yourself out of bed, try and change your mindset so that you’re ready to take on the week. Leave last week’s nightmare where it belongs and concentrate on making this one more successful!
