Watching amazing stories in video form can be quite therapeutic.

Indeed, “Cinema therapy” is a type of self-help that deals with physiological and psychological concerns. Gary Solomon, popularized the term, which he defines as the technique of employing movies for therapeutic reasons on the big screen or on television. Film therapies are effective for a variety of mental health disorders, including depression, anxiety, addiction, grieving, PTSD, and phobias.
