Every month, there are various new films that are released. Watching movies is indeed used as a means to entertain yourself. Especially if you watch a movie with friends, family, or loved ones. Aside from being entertainment, watching movies can actually provide therapy for physical health, especially mental health or better known as cinema therapy.
1. Encourage Emotional Release
Watching movies can encourage someone to express their emotions such as laughing and crying, even for those who have difficulty in this regard.
Releasing emotions gives a cathartic effect that makes someone easier and more comfortable to express themselves in real life.
2. Sad Films Make Someone Happier
Although it sounds counter-intuitive, Gary said that someone who has watched a very sad movie, will ultimately feel grateful for the life they have.
The tragedies and problems contained in the film can be a comparison for real life problems so that someone will appreciate everything in his personal life.
3. Help Understanding Your Own Life
Knowledge and wisdom have been passed on through the art of storytelling. The story will offer a variety of different perspectives and help one to understand the world. And movies are stories.
