Here’s the catch for movie fans. The films that hit On Demand would cost around $19.99 each. You can thank the COVID situation for the changing landscape of movie watching. More changes will come.
Study: Hedonism Is Key To Living A Happier Life
Hedonism is all about self-indulgence and it’s something a lot of us have become well acquainted with in quarantine. Anyone that’s been binge-watching Netflix and with their best buds Ben and Jerry for the past few months know exactly what I am talking about. And while you might think science would be against this type of short-term pleasure-seeking, you’d be wrong.
A new study has found people who take the time for hedonism are living happier lives and suffer less depression. Meaning all those people with things like“self-control”or“long-term goals”are really missing out. All that time you’ve spent bettering yourself and you could have been zoning out on Instagram instead.What a shame.
But don’t get it twisted, hedonism is harder than it looks. The research found that even when people added more time for pleasure, their moments of bliss got cut short by “real life” creeping in. Like hearing the email ding when you’re about to start your third hour of gaming. According to the research, the more you can block thought about work from your relaxing time the better. People who say they fully enjoy themselves have a higher sense of well-being and are less likely to suffer from depression, anxiety, and other long-term mental health conditions. So when you do take a break,really take a break.
A Hack For Finding Perfect Jeans Without Trying Them On
Back in the days when we used to try on clothes in stores, there was nothing worse than trying on a pile of jeans to try to find the best fit and walking out empty-handed. But a woman says she’s discovered a hack to find the perfect pair without even having to try them on and she’s letting us in on it.Billie Newland’sviral TikTokvideoof how to do it may have made shopping for jeans a lot easier.
The 25-year-old says she discovered the hack while doing laundry and it involves using your forearm to find the ideal size without ever trying the jeans on. In her video, Newland says to measure the waistband using the length of your forearm from your elbow to your wrist. If your arm fits snugly inside the waistband, that’s your perfect pair.
To test her theory, Newland asked her dad, boyfriend and friends to try the hack out and they all confirm it works. It could also help you find the right fit for shorts or skirts, too. This video has more than 1.6-million views, which means a lot of people out there will now be able to avoid that dressing room.
