Turning to your favorite Netflix show for comfort and entertainment during this time of uncertainty and social distancing?
Amidst this whole pandemic outbreak, we’ve seen sooo many articles about being productive, using your extra time “wisely,” and many other “overcoming the pandemic” hacks. Don’t get us wrong, those are all super great things to help you reach your online business goals, but here’s a reminder:
It’s totally okay to NOT be productive every single day!
Yes, girl. You have permission to just relax!
These times can be stressful, anxiety-inducing, and quite lonely. So, why not spend a little (or a lotta) time hangin’ out with your fictional BFFs to lighten your spirits? We certainly are! 😉
Pop that popcorn and grab the wine… Here are our six favorite totally binge-worthy Netflix shows that are sure to keep you uplifted right now!
1. Self Made
A newer Netflix show that is destined to get you inspired. From an impoverished African American washerwoman to the first female self-made millionaire, Madam C.J. Walker is a total girl boss!
One of the main reasons we absolutely love Self Made is because it so beautifully represents a woman who stood above criticism and promoted her brand despite the harsh judgment she faced. She is full of courage, determination, and so much inspiration.
Not only did she build a successful business from the ground up, but she also had a heart for pursuing other women and encouraging them to become entrepreneurs. This show and this woman motivate us on so many levels.
So even though you’re just relaxin’ on the couch, Self Made is sure to inspire you to never give up on your girl boss dreams!
2. The Office
With nine seasons of non-stop humor, The Office is the king of binge-worthy Netflix shows. Get ready to fall in love with the characters and become addicted to the random, sarcastic humor.
As a comedy centered around the ridiculous conflicts between coworkers, we live vicariously through the pranks, jokes, love stories, and friendships that play out throughout the series.
And since we run a remote team, it’s fun to get our “office” fix and briefly experience the 9-5 corporate life.
The Office is so simple yet totally genius.
3. Parks & Recreation
If you’re looking for a Netflix show that is full of female empowerment, comedy that will make you laugh for hours, and just Ron freakin’ Swanson, Parks & Rec is your go-to!
From Leslie Knope’s infectious optimism to Ron Swanson’s impressive eating habits, get ready to become so incredibly invested in this show, the town of Pawnee, and your new fictional BFFs. So invested, in fact, that once you watch all of the episodes, be prepared to go through some serious withdrawals.
Bonus: April Ludgate will likely make you feel a little less guilty about watching Netflix and being unmotivated 😉
4. Anne With an E
Based on the 1908 book, Anne With an E is a Netflix show you are sure to fall madly in love with!
From a mistreated orphan tossed from place to place to a proud young girl who fights for her life and others. Anne is a total young girl boss who stands up for what she believes in, is full of creativity, and never stops chasing her dreams.
With an ability to rewrite any situation to keep the glass half-full, Anne’s optimism, passion, resourcefulness, and humor will bring joy to your soul and lift those spirits high.
