Why Am I Watching So Much TV During Quarantine? | Media Psychology

Thanks for watching “Why Am I Watching So Much TV During Quarantine? | Media Psychology”!

This isn’t my usual kind of video, but I wanted to share my experience with my screen time during quarantine. I think a lot of us are seeing our screen time hours climb – I’m hoping that by sharing my own habits and my analysis of them through the lens of Media Psychology I might help others see their screen time in a new light. Ultimately, don’t be too hard on yourself for watching and playing more, but by using Media Mindfulness (an awareness of Media Psychology ideas and an awareness of your feelings during/after a media encounter) you can learn to change your habits or get the most out of them if you aren’t looking for change.

    Your videos are some of the best on Youtube, I actually get a lot of positive vibes from your videos aside from information. I actually started my master's in psychology, and although it's not media, it's refreshing to see different approaches taken to the field. Keep up the great work!

    Another fascinating, thought provoking video πŸ’•πŸ€”

    I've popped into Stardew Valley for a few hours a day which somehow turned into 25 hours in the last week! I like the constant progression and routine that seems so impossible otherwise right now. Other than that I've been rewatching Star Trek TNG which is full of adventure while also being familiar so it feels like I'm visiting old friends πŸ˜…

    Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and experience ! πŸ’• This video was a great introduction to media psychology and I really appreciate your personal touch on it. I also want to thank you for all the references that you put, it's great to get that so I'm going to try reading some of these ! I also like the editing, the music you chose, and I know I said it previously, but your voice is so soothing (it's almost like ASMR but with useful and original knowledge in the package lol). I can tell you that I feel better after watching this. 😊 I think it's good to have videos like this to help us put things into perspective, personally it makes me want to stop for a moment and examine my media consumptions with a new perspective, keep more control, and also perhaps practice writing how I feel about what I watch and how I relate to it on a personal level.
