2021 is here, and with the new year, comes plenty of new Netflix releases. If you're sick of cheesy Christmas movies, January's offerings promise a little more depth, with everything on offer from crime documentaries, moving cinema and even a look into the afterlife. In true new year fashion, the new releases also include an animated series focused on the practice of meditation, along with a film exploring how to live a more minimalist lifestyle.
Plus, if you've missed the latest releases, be sure to catch up on January's new shows and movies.
1. Headspace Guide to Meditation
Start 2021 as you mean to go on with Headspace Guide to Meditation. Coming on New Year's Day, the animated series takes viewers through the benefits and science behind meditation.
Each of the eight 20 minute episodes showcases a different mindfulness technique that aids in the practice of meditation––focusing on subjects such as stress, anger, and letting go––and ends with a guided meditation at the finale of every chapter, with the aim to make practicing meditation easy and accessible for everyone.
