Laughter is the best medicine...?

Right now I am not feeling too well. I think it's sinusitis and a bad cold. It's laid me up however, so this weekend I am doing nothing much except rest. There's also meant to be a wind chill factor of minus 6 centigrade, with snow expected Monday/Tuesday.

In an effort to heal myself, I plan to watch comedy films and programmes on DVD. I know there have been many studies done which show that laughter releases feel-good healing chemicals that support and strengthen the immune system.

So this morning I have been watching one of my favourite comedians on Youtube - Michael McIntyre. I saw this chap perform live in Edinburgh last year when I went to experience the festival with my mum. The excerpt below is when he performed at the Hammersmith Apollo. He does some hilarious mocking of Londoners, Scots and Brits in general. Enjoy!

Great to relive seeing LIVE from the front row in Edinburgh when we were there. Yes - laughter is the best dose to take.

Take care & get well soon,
