Top 5 Websites To Keep You Entertained And Informed About Movies

Top 5 Websites To Keep You Entertained And Informed About Movies

Entertainment is an important part of our lives. You might be an employee, a business owner, an entrepreneur or other, but there are times you just want to relax, entertain yourself, and catch your breath before the next task starts. For me, and for most people I guess, this involves watching movies and, in most cases, not just any movie, but the interesting box office-topping movies you have seen the interesting trailers for.

However, it is not always easy to make the trip to the cinema every time you want to. But, thanks to the internet, you can stay home, learn all of the information about a movie, become interested in movies through their reviews, and stream them straight from your tech device in the comforts of your home.

What is your preference? Hollywood? Bollywood? Here are five interesting websites to keep you entertained in all things movies, either with reviews, news, information, streaming, or even a combination of all four of these services.

Netflix

Of course, this list could not begin without Netflix! Netflix is a video streaming website founded by Marc Randolph and Reed Hastings in 1998. It started off as a DVD by mail service in 1998 and began streaming services in 2007. Netflix is so convenient and up-to-date that there is never a dull moment when you can just Netflix and chill after a hard day at work. Netflix supports lots of devices and operating systems so you can watch new box office movies, stream TV shows, and catch up on your favorite soaps anytime, anywhere. With over 81 million members in 150+ countries, this streaming service is taking over the movie scene and keeping us entertained all day. Just don’t slack off on important things or get carried away with using it at work.

Box Office Reporter

Bollywood lovers would love this! There are lots of interesting sites keeping us updated about Hollywood movies and news, but not many about Bollywood movies, so when I found this site, I kept going back.This Bollywood authority website gives up-to-date information, reviews, and updates on new movies, upcoming movies, and box office-topping movies. For lovers of the Bollywood industry and Bollywood movies, this is a goldmine for all the dramas and love that come with Bollywood. As a Bollywood lover, I like going to Box Office Reporter to check out reviews and updates on movies I look forward to seeing and movies I want to see next.

Hulu

Hulu is another high-quality online streaming website, similar to Netflix. They offer video clips, TV shows, and box office movies. Hulu used to be my go-to place until I discovered Netflix, however, there are still lots of interesting video clips and movies on Hulu. And with the agreements they have with certain networks, it’s possible to stream episodes of some TV shows as soon as the day after it’s aired.

The Hollywood Reporter

This is the Hollywood movie authority dishing up-to-date information, movie reviews, movie trailers, on-set pictures and gossip, inside source scoops, and lots more. I always spend time on this site getting information on movies topping the box office, movies that are in the process of being made, or about to be made. If you are a movie lover like me, then you should know that The Hollywood Reporter is loaded with news about movies, TV shows, exclusive actor interviews, and trailers. You will definitely get addicted to this site.

YouTube

This list just wouldn’t be complete without mentioning YouTube. YouTube is a video-sharing website with over 80 million users and is a source of entertainment with a very wide range and variety of user-uploaded content ranging from, movies, music videos, cute videos, original content, and lots more. I recall spending hours on YouTube catching up on reality shows, cooking shows, and other fun and interesting videos. In addition, several networks also share free videos of their broadcasting service. YouTube is very entertaining!

While there are several other sites that can keep you entertained, depending on our mood and preference, I hope you enjoy these interesting ones I have listed here the next time you need a break from the daily grind.

Kickstart Your Morning Workout With These 10 Simple Habits

Kickstart Your Morning Workout With These 10 Simple Habits

Benjamin Franklin said it like this: “Early to bed, early to rise, will make a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.” He knew from his own experiences and watching others that the ones who got up early were healthier and more successful. That’s why a morning workout can be so important.

One 2017 study found that:[1]

“after controlling for such factors as age, sex, smoking habits, and others…night owls, were found to have a 10 percent greater risk of dying from any cause compared to morning types.”

This is a great reason to tap into some morning motivation and get your morning workout done.

Circadian Rhythm for morning workout

    As you can see in the above graph, your blood pressure begins to rise between 6 and 7 in the morning[2]. That means this is a great time to get your body moving and your heart pumping, even if it’s just for 20 minutes of exercise in the morning.

    Here are some tips on how to find the motivation for a morning workout.

    1. Remember Your Why

    It starts with remembering why you want to get up for a morning workout. If you don’t set a goal and establish your reasons for accomplishing a health and fitness goal, then you definitely won’t get up early.

    Getting up early isn’t easy. If it were, everyone would do it, right? Your goal for your health and fitness must be so strong, and the WHY behind it must be so powerful, that nothing will stop you from accomplishing that goal.

    2. Go to Bed Early

    If you want to get up early for a morning workout, it’s going to be important to get to bed earlier. Falling asleep at midnight and trying to get up at six just won’t work in your favor.

    This will likely be very difficult for a few days while you adjust your sleeping habits. However, as you get into an exercise routine in the morning, this will naturally make it easier to fall asleep earlier and faster at night.

    3. Make a Commitment

    I sometimes tell my Facebook community of my plans to work out, and we all keep each other motivated by posting our runs, our workouts, etc. This is a way to develop accountability. By publicly announcing your intentions, you increase your chances of actually carrying out your plans.

    Another way to do this is to find an accountability partner who has similar goals for morning workouts. You can check in with each other to make sure you’re sticking to your plans. If that doesn’t work, hire a personal trainer for a few weeks to get you started.

    4. Find a Friend

    If you can find a friend that is motivated like you are, and you can hold each other accountable daily to working out, then you will accomplish your fitness goals. Many people prefer working out with friends to working out alone. Whether it’s a chat while hitting the treadmill at the gym, or having someone to spot you while weightlifting, working out with friends is sometimes just more enjoyable.

    Texting each other the night before with a simple statement is best. Don’t ask: “Are we still working out in the morning?” With this kind of question, if they were thinking about not working out, you just gave them an opt out.

    Make a statement instead: “Can’t wait to see you in the morning!” This implies that they will be there, and they will feel more obligated to show up.

    5. Treat Yourself

    We all have to treat ourselves every now and then. After a morning workout, plan to treat yourself with a colorful, healthy breakfast or a delicious morning smoothie. This will help you look forward to something and push through to the end of your workout.

    6. Change your Mindset

    Many people throw away the idea of a morning workout by simply saying, “I’m not a morning person.”  Instead of using this excuse, decide to try to become a morning person by shifting your mindset.

    When you look into the benefits of waking up early and getting some exercise in before your day starts, you’ll feel more positive about your life overall.

    7. Plan Your Day

    You know you’re going to be busy. Try time blocking to plan all the things you need to do on a given day, and make sure you add in your morning workout[3]. If you have a plan laid out, you’ll be more likely to follow it and get done everything on your list done.

      8. Reflect on How You’ll Feel After

      Starting a morning workout is hard, but visualizing how you’ll feel after can help you find motivation. Think about the extra energy you’ll have and how proud you’ll feel knowing that you were already so productive. No matter what you do the rest of the day, at least you squeezed in your exercise!

      Advertising

      For me, I live in an area where there are a lot of runners. When I am heading home in the evening or sitting out on the patio at one of my favorite restaurants, and I see the runners go by, it makes me feel so accomplished that I got mine in that morning and I can enjoy the evening.

      9. Lay out Your Workout Clothes

      Setting out your workout clothes the night before makes it impossible for you to start to run late because you couldn’t find something to wear. Tap into the determination you have before bed in order to convince your less-than-motivated morning self that you need to get up and get your morning workout in. When you wake up and see your outfit laid out next to you, it’ll push you to get up and get moving.

      10.  Set Multiple Alarms

      Many people miss their morning workout simply because they hit the snooze button so many times. In order to make this more difficult for yourself, set a series of alarms. That way, if you keep hitting snooze, you’ll have three or four alarms going off every ten minutes, which will be annoying enough to get you out of bed.

      Also, put one alarm at least a few feet from your bed so that you’re forced to get up to turn it off.

      Final Thoughts

      About three years ago I went from being the person that says I will never be an early riser to a person that loves to get the day started as soon as possible. Without the distractions that begin to come around 8 or 9 in the morning, you’ll find that you’re more productive and more likely to squeeze in that morning workout.

      Take some of the actions above and find the best morning workout routine to start your day and feel good.
