In the last couple of years, the baby boomer, millennial, and gen-Z generations have seen a lot of stress, given the circumstances we’ve been in. From a pandemic and global lockdown to socio-political tensions and impending recession, there have been endless opportunities for us all to spiral, but we’ve prevailed. However, it does not mean that life continues to be stressful for you, especially if you’re an Indian studying or working abroad. A light bite of comedy can do wonders to your mental health, which is why we at Desi Play TV have brought you nostalgic comedic series to help you feel stress-free. Here are five reasons you should watch your favorite Indian comedy series today!
Instant serotonin boost:
Living away from home in the last three years has felt intense and challenging for most students and working professionals. At such times, some familiarity can make all the difference. Give your body a break from all the stress hormones and enjoy a feel-good burst of serotonin! A Bollywood movie or comedy series can bring you some desi humor that you miss in the US!
De-stresses in 30 minutes:
Comedy is an easy way to shake off the stress of the day, especially when it comes to Hindi humor. Moreover, episodes of Bhaag Bakool Bhaag are short and sweet, all but under 30 minutes! Make them your go-to de-stressor for a lighthearted evening.
Short escape from reality:
Sometimes it’s good to take a breather and take a break from reality for a while. Laughing your heart out while watching comedy can help your mind relax!
Improves your productivity:
