There’s no denying that the world feels a little daunting and uncertain right now, and as we’re all stuck inside our screen time is on the rise. While it’s important to keep up with the news, sometimes you need to switch off from reality and soak up some feel-good vibes! Take a look at our favourite feel-good, must-watch TV shows to binge watch during lockdown:
The most wholesome transformation show EVER. Join the Fab Five as they restore the confidence of unsuspecting folk, working on interiors and fashion to health and cooking – this feel-great show will not only leave you with a wealth of tips to implement in your own life, but will give you an escape from reality.
Follow the story of Annie, a fat 20-something year old journalist who resolves to stop playing down to society’s expectations when it comes to her size. This body positive show is a taboo-smashing and liberating delight to watch.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
When you need a reminder that things will be ok, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is the one to watch.

With a super-positive ‘glass half full’ outlook, she overcomes any obstacle in her way.
In a similar way to Kimmy Schmidt, Jess Day of New Girl maintains the upbeat, positive attitude despite life seemingly falling apart around her. Full of relatable characters and moments, it makes a great escape from reality for a few hours.
