Feeling under the weather? Try the rom-com remedy — three out of five Americans say it’s their favorite film genre when it comes to the count.
That’s according to a new survey of 2,000 millennial parents of children aged 4 to 12, who also watch action and adventure films (37%) and series like Harry Potter or The Hunger Games (36%). ) look at.
When an illness strikes, more than four in five (82%) spend most of their time in their bedroom, with 42% staying on the couch in their living room.
This can contribute to the average parent watching five hours of television or movies every sick day.
Conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Delsym, the results showed how respondents optimize comfort with their favorite things.
The results showed that respondents get sick about three times a year.
Respondents were more likely to prefer old favorites than engaging in new content when feeling sick (23% vs. 15%).
When parents are sick with their children, the most popular films are the Harry Potter series (32%) and the Toy Story series (32%).
They also watch movies like Frozen (30%), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (28%) and Moana (25%).
More than half (56%) of respondents have a favorite or feel-good movie, with the average person reporting they can watch it four times in a row without getting sick
In fact, 45% of them admit they can watch it more than four times, and one in ten (11%) even say they can watch it “infinitely.”
Overall, respondents watched their feel-good film about 34 times.
This film has been respondents’ favorite for about six years, perhaps because it reminds them of good times (61%) and makes them laugh (53%).
Parents report feeling relaxed (54%), happy (48%) and calm (40%) after watching their favorite movie.
Almost two-thirds (63%) of parents agree they passed the love of their favorite movie on to their child.
“Nothing brings a family together like movie night, and nothing makes movie night like a feel-good flick that fills you with warm, fuzzy feelings — especially when you’re sick.” We understand that feeling better means more than just relieving your cough symptoms — it’s about curling up on the couch while you and your family work to feel better together,” said Albert So, Marketing Director, Upper Respiratory Brands at Reckitt, including Delsym.
The survey also looked at how respondents heal their ailments by taking care of their five senses.
To relieve their symptoms, parents tend to try soup (42%) and hot drinks like tea or coffee (26%).
They also want to touch things like their favorite blanket (40%), their significant other (19%) and their pet (14%).
When it comes to smell, respondents like to breathe something clean like fresh linens (42%), medication (36%), and something being cooked in the kitchen (26%).
And while trying to feel better, respondents enjoy listening to music (58%) and talking to friends and family (29%).
“When one family member suffers from the weather, the entire household is caught up in a storm and that routine can be disrupted, causing discomfort and chaos. Families not only need fast-acting relief, but also calming remedies to help them weather this storm,” So said. “Whether it’s Mom’s chicken soup, your favorite movie, or snuggling with your kids, whatever gets you going Feeling better can go a long way.
