Watching movies and K-dramas have always been part of me-time when I was a housewife. But it’s not like a rest-and- lepak, because I was still multi-tasking with my regular housework!
Ever since I went back to work, obviously I no longer have the luxury of watching movies mid-day, ‘errday.
Though it’s been less than a year, I think I’m feeling a lot of stress. My blood pressure is through the roof, I’m falling sick more often, cannot sleep at night and when I do I dream of my excel spreadsheets and beautifying my PowerPoint decks. Serious!
I read that these were symptoms of burnout. A bit scared la so I thought I should try to find ways to de-stress. Of course, the first thing I thought of was to bring back the me-time, movie time. 2-3 hours for one day each week, to watch a movie after work. At the cinema this time because I don’t plan to fold anyone’s clothes while I’m de-stressing!
Anyway, did you know that watching movies has psychological benefits? Some studies have shown that focused watching helps to improve cognition and memory and boost moods- all of which help to improve mental health!
