A number of streaming services would prefer you replace the phrase ‘binge-watching’ with the term ‘marathon viewing’.

One sounds better than the other.

But don’t be fooled. The outcome is the same. You’ve spent hours doing one thing when you could have been doing something else. That’s not a problem if it’s strategically done. However, when it’s not, it can hurt.

We play with words all the time. Sometimes harmlessly, sometimes not.

Catch yourself when you change the narrative of your life. See if it gets in the way of getting you closer to what you really want.

You may have just done a ‘marathon’ but was this ‘marathon’ really worth it?
