A SELF help coach reckons watching movies may be the key to bettering ourselves this year.

While many people turn to books or online for improvement guidance, Dawud Gurevitch reckons that watching our favourite films can teach us important lessons.




Dawud - who is a self help coach, author and movie mentor- helps his clients by prescribing a night (or day) watching films.

He says that the key is watching the right movie in the right way so you can apply it to your own life.

Dawud has studied hundreds of movies and analysed the lessons they teach us. He expertly matches clients needs to films with relevant lessons that can help them and shows how they can apply these lessons to their own lives.

He says: Movies entertain us they make us laugh, cry and even inspire us to get up and go for a run, as I found out after watching Tron: Legacy, but did you know that they can also inspire you to change your life?

Read on as Dawud explains how watching the following films can make you stronger, braver, more grateful, more mindful and have more self-control.

Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru (2016) is a feel-good documentary about one of Tony Robbins yearly seminars called Date with Destiny.

If you havent heard of him before, Tony is one of the worlds top life and business coaches, and this film can inspire you to be stronger when you hear about some of the participants shocking stories and when you see how Tony helps them to heal and to move on with their lives.

Being strong now is more important than ever so that we can handle the pandemic fallout.

Close (2019) is a powerful and believable thriller inspired by true events in which Sam Carlson (Noomi Rapace), a counter-terrorism expert and bodyguard, fights tooth and nail to protect her spoiled client, Zoe Tanner (Sophie Nelisse), from some dangerous people out to steal her large inheritance.

Watching Sam risk life and limb as she willingly and repeatedly goes head- to-head with the bad guys intent on hurting and even killing her should inspire us to face our own struggles with more oomph.

The Bucket List (2007) is the story of two poorly men, Edward Cole (Jack Nicholson) and Carter Chambers (Morgan Freeman), and how they bring joy to one another towards the ends of their lives.

Seeing how these two men who go from being complete strangers to being best friends make the most of their time together, despite their poor physical health, should give us reason to be grateful for our own circumstances and enables us to see opportunities that we can create to live life to full.

Eat Pray Love (2010) is the true story of successful Writer Elizabeth Liz Gilbert, a woman unhappy with her husband, house and job, and how she travels to Italy, India and Bali in search of good food, spirituality and new love.

Making mindfulness a daily practice, as Liz does, can do wonders for calming your mind, relaxing your body and stilling your heart, especially during hard times.

Gravity (2013) is another film that can help us to feel stronger. This sci-fi thriller shows Sandra Bullock playing Dr Ryan Stone, an engineer who becomes stranded alone inside her damaged space shuttle and attempts to return to Earth alive.

The ability to be emotionally fit in difficult situations such as this pandemic, including lockdowns, isolation and loneliness, is important for our overall wellbeing.

Dr Stones self-control when distressed shows us how we can do the same. So, get on Netflix, grab your popcorn and get ready to be become the new and improved you!
