Forget your phone! It's easy enough to get distracted by social media while you're streaming, but there are some addicting shows on Netflix that will make you forget all about Instagram for a couple of hours. No matter if you're looking for a chilling thriller or a light-hearted comedy, the streamer has got it all.

Netflix is known for its diverse original content, which spans across every genre you could imagine. Hilarious adult cartoons like Big Mouth or crime dramas like Mindhunter have become beloved by audiences over the years, allowing them to escape from reality, even if just for a few moments.

As addicting as scrolling through your phone can be, it's important to give yourself a break from time to time, even if that break is spent laying in bed watching your new favourite show.

The streamer also has tons of new and exciting content coming out throughout the month of June, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled!
