What is Escapism?

 , updated on September 08, 2016
Escapism is the use of imagination, entertainment, art, music, celebration and recreation to transcend the mundane or unpleasant realities of daily life. It is often portrayed negatively as avoidance of problems that require attention.

The Value of Escapism

As long as it doesn't go too far, escapism has tremendous value to wellbeing and culture. Dwelling in problems isn't necessarily the most efficient way to solve them. Daydreaming is considered a valuable exercise in creativity. Listening to music or watching a film may stimulate enthusiasm or provide a new perspective on problems.

Escapism & Marketing

Brands that stimulate the imagination and positive emotions tend to sell. This is the reason that advertising may do little more than present positive emotions alongside brand symbols.

Escapism & Productivity

Organizations that steep employees in boredom, misery and hardship will soon find that they find ways to escape. Employers that manage to make work fun, social, stimulating and challenging for the imagination will find that employees escape to work as opposed to escaping from it.
