Time For a Little Bit of Comedy

There was a film by Monty Python called ‘The life of Brian’. In this film was a song and the chorus went:

“Always look on the bright side of life,
If life seems jolly rotten,
There’s something you’ve forgotten,
And that is to laugh and smile and dance and sing.”

Let’s do a little exercise. Put a smile on your face right now. Not just a turn up of the corners of your lips but a full-blown smile that incorporates your whole face. Now, what does that feel like? It certainly changes the way you look, does it change the way you feel? 

A good, old laugh will automatically change the way you feel as it decreases stress hormones and relieves physical tension leaving your muscles relaxed. Laughter boosts your intake of oxygen stimulating your heart, lungs and muscles, this, in turn, will increase the production of endorphins that are released by your brain.

Laughter is a powerful,  free medicine, so why not take advantage and flick on the TV or dig out that old DVD, find a good comedy and laugh, laugh again and then laugh some more. 

They say that laughter is contagious so maybe you can even spread it around?  Share it with others perhaps?
