Funny Movie List – Laugh more, feel better.

Albert The Joy Dog

Albert loves a great comedy!

Compiling a funny movie list seems like the perfect project for this bleak, rainy, cold, bleh, kind of a day. Am I dating myself too much if I told you I was listening in to Wednesday Morning, 3AM by Simon & Garfunkel while I’m at it?!

Listing funny movies and singing along with S & G is definitely raising my mood and energy! Some of these movie titles were added by a young friend of mine … some were family favorites from my childhood like Get Smart! My father’s pick would have been The Woman in the Red Dress.  I remember seeing Young Doctor Frankenstein with my mother and brother R. when I was ten years old. Twenty years later I introduced it to my nieces and nephews. My grandmother loved all the Benji movies and had a dog that looked just like him. Wild Target is a favorite of my husband. Stuck on You featured two hilarious minutes with Fred Burns ….

Please review and add in any I’ve overlooked. Or, let me know which ones are your favorites too! The power of humor is incredibly healing and something our tired adrenal glands need more and more these days. Add one into your next order from Amazon and share it with a friend, human or furry, to maximize its energy-boosting-benefits!

So … let’s do an experiment here. I’ll post some photos and you tell me if they make you feel happier … scroll on down! Then please post a comment!

Laughter Yoga – Energy Boost Tip for Today!

I started off yesterday in a state of high amusement. In fact I laughed on and off all and I felt GREAT and full of energy.

What happened? My husband Michael was squeaking when he walked! It reminded me of the Seinfeld episode where George gets a new suit to impress a potential boss and his board. Did you see that? Anyway because he is chubby his thighs rub and the fabric of the suit pants made a whoosh whoosh whoosh sound that had everyone trying to figure out where that sound was coming from!

If you saw that episode you’ll be chucking with me. If not, sorry “you had to be there.”

Michael was squeaking when he walked because plastic badges on his lanyard were rubbing together. Today he put on on them in a pocket so I have to find something else to laugh about!

And I found it … Laughter Yoga. This article is a short must read! Click here

The Energizing Benefits of Smiles!

According to The British Dental Health Foundation “a smile gives the same level of stimulation as eating 2,000 chocolate bars!” And, according to psychologist Dr. David Lewis “Seeing a smile creates what is termed as a ‘halo’ effect, helping us to remember other happy events more vividly, feel more optimistic, more positive and more motivated.”

Want to feel better? Smile more …

Don’t believe me? Prove it to yourself. Make a point of smiling at everyone you see today. And, put a smile on your face when you talk to people you can’t see. (You can tell, even over the phone, if someone is smiling or not – can’t you?!)

So – give this a try – then post me a comment in the morning …

:) :) :) Viveca
