Some might call me lazy, because watching TV shows is one of my favorite past times. However, I don’t often mindlessly watch TV. And I try to not binge on TV shows too much, because I feel like Netflix can feed my depression.

Still, watching a TV show is still one of my top coping mechanisms. I love being taken into another world, embracing the characters and the storyline.

I don’t feel so lonely. My anxiety isn’t so high. With every episode, I get to escape my reality.

Here are 10 TV shows I watch when I’m having a bad day:

I got my first computer when I was 7 or 8. Ever since then, I’ve played The Sims. And even though I’ve played many games in my life, I’ll always consider Sims to be one of my favorite games of all time.

I own The Sims: Complete Collection, every Sims 2 expansion pack and 4 stuff packs, and the first Sims 3 game. I also have all The Sims games for PlayStation 2.

I’m looking to eventually get all the stuff packs from Sims 2 to complete the collection, as well as The Sims 3 and Sims 4 games and the other spin-offs in the future. Even though the first two series will always be my favorites!
