What Is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is a form of recreation that can provide joy and relaxation. It can also be a powerful stress-buster by decreasing cortisol levels. It can be as simple as watching a comedy show or as complex as a fine art exhibit or a complicated drama. Some prefer entertainment that is thought-provoking or educational, such as documentaries or puzzles. Others like entertainment that can be shared with others, such as sports or multiplayer video games.

Many people find that social backstabbing or murders in a drama are entertaining, because they hit on the emotions that our brain was evolved to deeply react to. Entertainment may also stimulate the brain, realeasing seratonin and dopamine.
