    Is a day spent watching movies when you could’ve been working a day wasted or well spent?

    Depends entirely on what movies you're watching. If it's something like "The Social Network" or "The Tree Of Life", well spent. If it's "Alvin & The Chipmunks" or "Transformers", wasted.

    Well that depends on who you are and what you do for a living. In case you are a screenwriter or film director, watching movies is just part of the job...

    I may have to recuse myself. I haven't been to a movie theater in over 10 years. However, regarding TV movies I'm all for it. Sometimes the night before a day off I will break out all the Star Wars movies, start at the beginning, and end with the last. I call that an all nighter. Daytime it would be the Bourne series.

    I depends upon the reason which prompted me to do such. If I watched movies mainly to relax; to have an all day with my fiancee; or just to have a ME time, then it's not a wasted time at all. big_smile

    If I had planned on getting some work done and was then distracted by the movies, I would feel like it was a wasted day.  If I had all of my work done and then rewarded myself with a day of watching movies, it would be time well spent.

    It depends on the conditions of the day you are watching the movies. Do you need or deserve a day of movies, pigging out and relaxation? Or are you spending a day of movies when you could be doing something else like you normally do once or even twice a week?

    Definitely a day well spent. Watching movies can allow us to take the much needed time to "de-stress" and rejuvenate ourselves. I think too often in this world we run our butts off and don't take the time to relax. Stress kills.

    If you've been overworked, well spent. If you've been slacking a lot, then wasted.
