Entertaiment is the activity of amusing and distracting oneself for enjoyment or relaxation. Examples of entertainment include playing games, watching movies or TV, listening to music, reading novels and other literature for pleasure, and attending live performances such as dance or comedy shows.
The word entertain derives from the Latin prefix inter, meaning “inside,” and the suffix tenere, from the Indo-European root ten, which means to stretch or enlarge.
Entertainment often hits the points that our brains were evolved to deeply react to, such as backstabbing and murders. This stimulation releases seratonin, dopamine and other chemicals that give us a good feeling.
