Several years ago I attended a Humour Seminar in Wellington with my friend Rosalind. Australians Patricia Cameron-Hill and Shane Yates presented and thoroughly convinced me, if I needed convincing, that humour has such an important part to play in contributing to our health and wellbeing.
Shane and Cameron are still around and last year published the video below. It is summarised as follows:
A positive attitude is too important to be left to chance. That’s because everything you do can be easier and more enjoyable when you’re in a good mood. Being in a good mood can improve relationships, enhance learning, make hard work easier, prevent accidents and reduce stress. There is also a strong connection between positive emotions and good health.
Please enjoy this offering. You may also appreciate surfing through Patricia's Shane's website http://www.chy.com.au/
SEMINAR POSTPOSED UNTIL LATE 2015
Perhaps this video and their website will be motivators for you to attend my Wellington Humour Seminars in August?
We'll go to the doctor when we feel flu-ish or a nagging pain. So why don’t we see a health professional when we feel emotional pain: guilt, loss, loneliness? Too many of us deal with common psychological-health issues on our own, says Guy Winch. But we don’t have to. He makes a compelling case to practice emotional hygiene — taking care of our emotions, our minds, with the same diligence we take care of our bodies.
