Laughter really is the best medicine and certainly can improve performance and weight loss. Likewise being a miserable git will help you into a early grave, keep fat on and stop your body functioning properly. There are loads of studies talking about the effects of being happy, laughter, not hating and the amazing health benefits of them all.
In one amazing study, sixteen men watched a funny video, afterwards they tested the mens hormonal change.
- levels of the stress hormone (fat storing) cortisol fell by 39%
- Adrenaline levels fell by 70%, we dont need to have adrenaline floating around in our normal day to day.
- Our good healthy hormones endorphins grew by 27%.
- The growth hormones increased by a stagering 87%

The grandson asked,"which one will win the fight?. The grandfather responded "the one i feed.
A great story and the same way Nelson Mandela managed to live to the grand old age of 95, you see he had a reason to hate, however he chose not to hate and be happy. Every time you seen the big man, he was always smiling, cracking jokes and being positive.
