Netflix Movies To Watch This Weekend That Will Light A Fire Up Your Ass For the Work Week Ahead

I know the feeling: not wanting to do anything on Sunday because you are already exhausted from the work week ahead. And it hasn’t even started yet… What I do to get me through the week? Glad you asked! I will watch Netflix movies that’ll help me get motivated. That doesn’t sound that hard, right?

Bring it on

All Bring it On movies take me back to my teenage years: I wanted (no, needed) to be a cheerleader. Unfortunately we don’t have cheerleaders in The Netherlands. At least, not at school. Believe me, I wanted to move to the US just so I could be a cheerleader. And I am not even that sporty. These movies always make me feel like I can conquer the world. That should do it for the next week(s)!

Legally Blonde

If the graduation speech scene from Elle does not give you the energy, motivation and courage to go to work next week: I don’t know what will. “You must always have faith in yourself” are words to live by. Legally Blonde is a perfect example of a “Work Hard, Play Hard” motto. Help us get through life, Elle Woods! We will be very grateful.

The Princess Diaries

One of my all time favorites: The Princess Diaries. Not everyone of us randomly finds out that we are a princess and get a complete makeover. Oh boy, do I wish this happens to me. My theory behind seeing this movie as a motivational speech: you want to live as a princess? You better werk, b*tch. (Pardon my French).

Camp Takota

This movie is about a woman who finds out her man has cheated on her and she has a mental breakdown. Until she gets convinced to go help at her old summercamp: Camp Takota. The movie is perfect because it has three hilarious main characters played by Grace Helbig, Hannah Hart and Mamrie Hart. This movie teaches us not to give a f*ck. When something bad happens in life, don’t sit around and weep. Work, laugh and reunite with friends instead! Don’t let a man hold you down. AMEN.

Fundamentals of Caring

Save the best for last: this (new) Netflix Original literally put a smile on my face. Multiple times. Ben is a retired writer who becomes a caregiver after suffering a personal tragedy. After 6 weeks of training, Ben meets his first client, Trevor, a 18-year-old with muscular dystrophy (and a strange sense of humor). Ben and Trevor take a road trip to all the places Trevor has become obsessed with while watching the local news, including their holy grail: the World’s Deepest Pit. If Trevor, the handicapped boy, can travel around the USA while being in a wheelchair, you can get the motivation to get out of bed on Monday and face this week. Don’t be a baby. We can do this together!

My last recommendation is: watch all of these movies on the same day. When people at work ask: “What did you do this weekend?” You can legit say: “Preparing for work, as usual.” Doesn’t that sound grown-up? They will all be like: “Wow, this girl is a keeper.” “She even thinks about work on the weekend.”

You’re welcome, world.
