Binge-Watching TV Heightens Risk of Blood Clots

Updated: Mar 3



'Binge watching' seems to be everyone's guilty pleasure these days. The latest research indicates that our guilt is well-founded, as several studies have linked prolonged TV watching sessions with fatal Blood Clots (VTE) and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (CVD). This is because it encourages a sedentary lifestyle, with long hours spent with barely any movement, coupled with mindlessly snacking on junk food.

However, there is no reason you can't keep up with your favourite shows while also avoiding these health risks.


Read on to know 3 easy steps to avoiding fatal Blood Clots that can happen as a result of Prolonged TV Watching sessions.


Step 1-

Take frequent breaks to walk around and stretch. Something as simple as a few stretches or a small walk outside can make a huge difference, and also make you feel energized, as opposed to watching TV continuously, which can make you feel more lethargic.


Step 2-

Have a fitness schedule. Moderate to vigorous exercise a few times a week can offset the health problems caused by binge-watching.


Step 3-

Make your TV time snacks more healthy. Switch to salads, almonds, and green tea instead of chips and soft drinks. Resisting the urge to binge eat while we binge-watch can reduce some of the damage caused to our health by watching TV for long periods.


Adopting a healthy lifestyle can seem hard in the beginning, but once you commit to it, it can change your life for the better!
