Sometimes you just wanna snuggle up under the covers with the A/C blasting, your favorite snacks on hand and watch some good TV.
Seriously – there’s no better way to veg out. We actually recommend that you hold a solid Netflix Binge Day once a month. Like a necessary recharge.
Who doesn’t like a recharge?
To help you plan your next Netflix Binge Day, we’ve compiled some of the best shows for you to get absolutely lost in – for your convenience, we’ve also included how many seasons each has, the amount of hours you’d have to dedicate, and a Time-In-Bed Scale for you to truly plan out your big day(s) in.
SEASONS: 3 (…so far)
