With the rainy season just around the corner and the general easy access to TV, turning into a couch potato isn’t always that hard to resist. Almost everyone also has a favorite TV show and with the summer hiatus finally over for most of them, fall TV is making a comeback. We also see the return of our inability to leave the comfort of the living room to visit the gym.
Fall TV: Returning shows and newcomers
Most of the sitcoms and reality shows we love took a break for the summer. New seasons are premiering almost every day of the week this month. Most major television networks have a little something for everyone. some big name returning shows are Bones, Big Bang Theory, Grey’s Anatomy and Glee. The newcomers include Betrayal, The Crazy Ones, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Dads. There is a show for any interest.
Before you pick up the remote and tune into the season premier of your new favorite series, think about how you’re spending your time. We have tips for staying active and preventing the couch potato fate.
Get off the couch
It is time to get up and get active before you make the couch your primary residence. You can stay fit and active this fall and winter. You don’t need a gym for it — the only things you need are a bit of space and willpower.
You could hop on the treadmill during your weekly show or do simple workouts during the commercials. You’ll still get to enjoy the show, but you’ll feel energized when the show is over.
Fall TV: Stay moving this season
Whatever you choose to do, be sure that the new fall TV shows don’t dominate your time. You can quickly slip into an inactive slump. Give your TV show routine an upgrade by adding exercise routines to your show. How do you work on your fitness while watching your favorite shows? Let us know in a comment!
