Feel pumped after watching Rocky? We’re not surprised. A study published in the journal Media Psychology found exposure to positive entertainment raised participants level of hope and positive emotions for up to three days after viewing.

Underdog tales had the greatest result where the elevated mood motivated viewers to pursue their own goals or feel more hopeful. So next time you need a pick me up press play on your favourite tv show. But don’t get too comfy, participants only watched five-minute clips. Easy.
