Thank you for sharing this. I can agree with most of the points you make here, however, I have to respectfully disagree with this statement. As a blanket statement anyway. Binge can refer to many things, obviously, but if you’re referring to say, binge watching a show, it isn’t necessarily because we are bored. Personally, I don’t watch much live TV, I prefer to watch shows once all episodes are available somewhere. If something is really good or interesting, it draws you in regardless of boredom, and you want to watch as much as you can. This can go for reading as well. I have picked up many books that I intended to read over time, but it was just so good, I ended up spending hours devouring it whole.
Honestly, I feel that as long as you get things done, there’s not a thing in the world wrong with taking that time for yourself, however you choose to spend it.
