The Inspirational Power of Movies

Winters in the Northwest are a great time to break out the video membership card and catch up on your couch time, but who says watching movies has to be a waste of time.

Movies have an incredible effect on our mood and can used to help provide a little boost of inspiration. If you don’t believe me, start humming the Rocky theme and tell me that you can’t see yourself at the top of the steps throwing your hands in the air. The following is a list of the most inspirational movies of all time, being from Indiana I was disappointed to see that Hoosiers and Breaking Away didn’t make the list.??
