Seven Reasons Why Watching Movies Is Actually Good For You

Movies are in no small way pillars of our society, but for some, it is a waste of time or a pointless adventure. For movie lovers, this causes heartache.

Some claim to love reading books and prefer it to seeing movies. The place of books cannot be taken by films and vice versa.

Shedding a tear after a good movie, beaming with laughter during or after seeing a good movie, all these are therapeutic and cannot be overemphasised when discussing the role of films.

With that said, let's explore some other reasons apart from entertainment why watching a movie is actually good for you.

Watching movies can help you boost your emotional sensitivity. One can become more empathetic from watching a film.

Other feelings or emotions can also be triggered just by seeing a good film.

Over the years, films have served as the best advisor for some of us. Remember, film is a humane art and at its core is the intention to redefine humanity.

So, watching a good film has its own way of inspiring or motivating a person. It can toggle them in action.

3. Therapeutic

It is not an exaggeration to say that films have played the role of a therapist for a lot of people. Watching a film can trigger an array of emotions; joy, hope, happiness, tolerance etc.

Many times, when we see ourselves in the characters on screen and we witness their journey, it feels like ours and in them solving their problems, we solve ours.

4. Movies As A Protective Bubble

Though exhaustive, films can help us in those moments when we need a break. When we need a break from all of the hardships that have permeated our lives.

5. Imagination Booster

Films like Star Wars have proven to be useful as tools that broaden our minds and shape our realities.

By doing this, films help us to sharpen our minds and we can fine-tune our minds to become much more imaginative. This imagination is the mother of creation

6. Rekindle Ties And Repair Families

Family is one of the most important parts of our lives but sometimes somewhere along the line we fall off.

Movies are in no small way a tool for rekindling those ties. Whether it be a Home Alone or a good Christmas Movie to remind us of the festive cheer we used to enjoy in the comfort of our homes, surrounded by families.

7. Means Of Information And Historical Knowledge

Everyone loves a good medieval movie. From rescuing princesses to battling dragons, all these movies have a root in history and in a way gives us a glimpse or window into the past.

Be it Viking sagas or Roman conquests, history keeps us in touch with the past. And as we all know, those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
