Entertainment has now become so commonplace that finding a digitized form of it is easier than ever, and what’s more, it won’t cost you much to experience. Finding some of the best content online doesn’t even take a diligent eye anymore either. For the price of an internet connection and a laptop, you have access to a world of entertainment that will leave you laughing, crying, inspired and horrified.

 

For the frugal person, this is a beautiful boon of the modern digital age. Life online has facilitated many entertainment sources in becoming more competitive, and as a result the cost of admission to these services has plummeted. It’s not difficult to imagine these days just how easy it might be to find the next great piece of content you adore for the minimal cost of a cheap subscription service.

 

But where are the best places to look to entertain yourself cheaply?

 

Look no further than these online hubs:

 

YouTube

 

YouTube is becoming more and more of an internet sensation as the years go by. In its early, humble stages, YouTube used to be a place for viral videos and funny cat picture compilations, but now a full culture of YouTube personalities who make their living providing free video entertainment mean that you can easily waste hours watching funny videos without having to pay a single penny.

 

Not only do amateur ‘video loggers’ make entertaining content, but now many shows place their ‘highlight reels,’ or promotional videos designed to get you watching their shows on YouTube for free. With video game ‘let’s plays,’ music videos and even some rudimentary television shows all being hosted on YouTube these days, YouTube is your one-stop shop if you have no money to place towards entertainment past your internet connection.

 

Netflix

 

If you’re looking for something much more professional, consider getting a cheap $9.99 Netflix subscription. With it, a world of content is at your fingertips. The favorite shows you had as a child, as well as some absolutely stunning original content,  makes Netflix the absolute best de-facto streaming service on the internet.

 

Shows like The Crown, Stranger Things, and Orange Is The New Black have all won awards for their amazing talent and tight storylines. What’s more is that they release these shows on a staggered schedule, so there is always something intrinsically entertaining to watch and keep you satisfied. What’s more, the new season of Orange Is The New Black is about to air on Netflix; you can find more information about that here https://netflixupdate.com/spoiler-alert-season-5-orange-new-black-trailer-finally/ – OITNB is heralded as one of Netflix’s most popular shows, and offers hours of hours of already hosted content.

 

Another benefit of a Netflix subscription is that the service places entire seasons of television shows on at the same time, lending itself to the ‘binge-watching’ format that many people claim is superior to waiting for a show to air week-by-week.

 

These two methods, combined, can provide you with more entertainment than you could adequately consume in a lifetime, and what’s more, combined they will only cost you £9.99 a month.

Unwelcome Thoughts: Are You Worried About Your Mental Health?

We all go through low periods, that’s just something that every adult has to get used to every now and then. However, there’s a big difference between going through a low period and being able to pull yourself out of that period for an incredibly long time. If it seems as though you’re feeling down more often than not, then that could be a sign that something a little more serious is going on. It’s a sad fact that most people are pretty uninformed about mental health because of the stigma that often surrounds it. However, mental health is important and should be considered in the same vein as physical health instead of something that people are ashamed of. With that in mind, here are some things that you should do if you’re worried about your mental health.

 

Speak to the people in your life

 

One of the hardest things about mental illness like depression or anxiety is how alone it can often make you feel. It’s easy to feel as though you’re totally unable to connect with the people around you because of any issues that you’re having with your mental health but in reality, you probably have a lot more people in your life you care about you and want to support you than you might think. The most important thing is that you actually reach out to these people and try to connect with them. If you don’t communicate that you’re worried about something to your friends and family, then they’re never going to be able to support you in the way that you really need. It’s not always easy to tell people that you’re struggling, but it’s often the first step on the path to getting the help that you need.

 

Do some research

When you feel as though there is something wrong with your mental health it can often be an incredibly confusing and upsetting experience. Because of this, a lot of people aren’t sure what it is that they’re feeling or what they should do about it. As much as people always tell you not to google your symptoms, doing so can help you much more easily identify what it is that’s wrong. You can often find the symptoms of things everything from depression and anxiety on sites like WebMD to these signs of residual schizophrenia from schizlife.com. Of course, you should rely solely on the internet and your own research for the kind of diagnoses that you really need, but it’s a good place to start.

 

Speak to a professional

Of course, if you feel as though you have an idea of what is wrong, or you just feel as though you really need help, then you need to speak to a professional. Make an appointment to speak to your doctor and explain the way that you’re feeling. Your doctor will likely have far more resources than you have access to and will be able to guide you in the right direction. Whether that takes the form of medication, therapy, or anything else, it’s important that you are as informed as possible as to the kinds of treatments options that are available to you.
