Vogue: The 8 Most Soothing TV Shows to Watch on Netflix Right Now
As our long national coronavirus nightmare continues, finding ways to relax and unwind has become more crucial than ever. Some are recommitting to meditation practices; some are working out stress and anxiety on solitary jogs. Personally, I'm dealing with all this by swaddling myself in blankets until I resemble an expertly wrapped Mission-style burrito and watching hours upon hours of Netflix.
Movies are a classic comfort-watching option, but sometimes you just don't have the attention span for a movie. (Stress is, after all, linked to distraction). That doesn't mean you don't deserve quality entertainment, though; below, find a list of TV shows guaranteed to help take your mind off COVID-19, in one way or another. (Please note that Tiger King does not make this list, primarily because I can't be alone in finding all that tiger print extremely stressful.)
This Canadian series based on L.M. Montgomery's classic 1908 novel, Anne of Green Gables, is as comforting as it gets. Anne, played by Amybeth McNulty, is effortlessly charming and cheerful even when the chips are down, which is a vibe I am not managing to embody right now. Still, it's nice to see it onscreen!
