C’Mon, Get Happy!

By: Jamin Mendelsohn


This week, The Reboot team is going to focus on the very positive subject of happiness! Lately, we’ve been seeing a lot of talk about the links between happiness and health and we’re excited to share it with you!


Laughter. We all enjoy a good laugh, but did you know that it’s also beneficial for your health, both body and mind? According to an article on EverydayHealth, “The benefits of a good laugh are wide-ranging and can include protection from emotional issues like depression and improving the health of your heart.” Read more by clicking here.


And having a laugh can burn calories (up to 50 calories in 10 minutes) and boost your heart rate. A laughter researcher reports in this article on WebMD, “It took ten minutes on a rowing machine for his heart rate to reach the level it would after just one minute of hearty laughter.”


So, go ahead, tell a couple of jokes, laugh with a friend or family member, or even find time to watch your favorite comedy. You’ll be doing good for yourself, while also having a great time!


Here are some fruit and veggie jokes that may get you thinking in this direction, even if they are a little ‘corny’ (see what I did there ;)..)! What has you laughing these days?


Why did the banana go to the doctor?
Because it wasn’t peeling very well


Which vegetable can’t you take on a boat?
A Leek


What do you get when two peas fight?
Black-eyed peas


Why did the Apple go out with a fig?
Because it couldn’t find a date!
