What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is the act of entertaining or providing enjoyment. It can take the form of anything from a theatrical performance or sports match to a meal with friends, reading books or attending a social gathering. Entertaining stimulates the brain to realease seratonin, dopamine and other chemicals that are beneficial for the body.
