It's nearly the weekend!

I found this recently and thought I'd share it as it made me chuckle and sometimes a giggle is exactly what we need isn't it?
So why do many scientists, doctors and psychologists believe in the medicinal powers of a proper good belly laugh?

Well here are a few suggestions:
  • Laughter triggers the release of endorphins which are also know as our body's natural "feel good chemical".  This can give us an overall feeling of well-being.
  • Laughter decreases our stress hormones and increases our immune cells.
  • Laughter relieves stress and physical tension in our muscles helping us to feel more relaxed. 
Now I don't know if this picture produced a proper good belly laugh in you enough for you to get the benefits above......but hopefully it put a smile on your face, gave you something to share with colleagues and friends and was a little pre-weekend light relief.

Happy weekend!
