Enhancing Vitality: Physiological Evidence for the Recovery Potential of Entertaining Movies

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Research on recovery from stress and strain demonstrated that entertaining movies can lead to mood repair, psychological detachment and relaxation. Through these processes, entertainment consumption fosters well-being by increasing feelings of vitality. As work strain and stress have a strong physiological component, studies relying solely on self-reports cannot answer the question of psychological and somatic recovery. The current study therefore addressed this issue by assessing saliva cortisol levels in order to relate a physiological indicator to experiences of recovery and vitality. In an experiment (N = 60), participants were stressed before they either watched a hedonic movie, a eudaimonic movie, or a control movie. Results confirmed that media stimuli amplify recovery experiences when they convey a high entertainment experience. Further, cortisol levels influenced post-reception vitality by enhancing energetic arousal and affect. These results are discussed regarding the interpretation of physiological indicators to study stress and strain.
