Downton Abbey

Downton Abbey – Is it good for you?

The television spectacular ‘Downton Abbey’ has created a great deal of interest across the UK and no doubt will sell well through out the world.  Is this drama good for the people who watch it?  What is the real appeal, is it the British love of going back to a time where money for some appeared to be no object, where class was clearly defined with extravagance and people had order? Or is it the setting in a house that few if any could ever aspire to owning and the rich surrounding countryside which must appear as heavenly especially if you live in an inner city surrounded by concrete and traffic?  Or is it the story line fiction at its best?

My view is that it must bring relief and escapism for some, to drift away for 90 minutes following the happenings of a large wealthy household with superb costumes, furniture, decor and great acting has to be a relaxing and calming influence on the mind and your health. Or could it generate a longing for riches outside of ones reach? Does it tempt us to rush out and buy a lottery ticket in the hope of instant wealth?

We are all different and our interpretation of what we see is different. Going back in time might stimulate thoughts of our own ancestors who were around then and perhaps they worked in service. May be stories have been handed down over the years of their life and encounters to match the pictures in an old biscuit tin.

Relaxation through hypnotherapy can provide a welcome relief for many with sleeping problems or for those who are restless and agitated. Watching an old movie or even a new one like Downton can and does provide a welcome distraction from our everyday lives, so that must be a good thing, yes? Drifting off for a short period of time is most likely good for anyone unless of course you are driving, flying a plane or operating machinery!! you get the picture.

So watching Downton, an old film or a anything that helps you relax and forget the here and now is worth it. Enjoy.
