A top psychologist is raising the alarm against true crime podcasts and how they serve as a major red flag.
Sources have gone on to speak about how true crime shows are gaining in popularity and viewership but this might not be in your favor as the expert mentioned.
The thought of crime shows and thrillers taking a toll on your mental health is not something too shocking but the red flag being raised right now has really got quite a few people talking.
The psychologist who goes by the name Dr. Thelma Tenni added how relaxing by watching crime is a big no, if you wish to keep your mental health and thoughts in check.
“You cannot expect to live a peaceful life when you’re surrounded by such matter and content all around”- she added.
But fans of such shows have to disagree. They claim that watching boring shows to relax is a major turn-off and that it just adds relaxation without any fun.
However, with crime shows, they’re excited and intrigued and have so many emotions running through their brain.
Hence, that was until she explained how one red flag that must be considered should surely change their train of thought.
“If you happen to be one of those that wish to wind down their day of relaxing with a disturbing show filled with the most shocking content then we’ve got the news.
You might be required to seek trauma counseling after that viewing session”- she added while blasting streaming services like Netflix for putting so many on display.
She further revealed how there happens to be nothing healthy about being soothed by violence. Instead, people need to understand and think about why watching trauma such as Law and Order is soothing for them.
“You probably love it because you can relate to it and that’s a sign of someone that needs help”- she continued.
That’s when they will see the clear problem attached. And as you can imagine, the viral video is now being circulated online so people can make better viewing choices.
