My Virtual Lions Gate BREAK - July 6, 2020 

Music is a great way to start the day. How about some carpool karaoke with James Corden and Sir Paul McCartney, who was knighted by the Queen on March 11, 1997. 



Here is the Encyclopedia Britannica biography of Paul McCartney if you want some more reading. 

Today's topic of conversation: "What is your favourite movie?" 

I have, of course, several, but if I had to take it down to one I think I might pick Patch Adams


In fact, if I hadn't gotten pregnant with my twins (a blessing not a joke) I was about to become trained as a laughter therapist. The physiological, psychological and cognitive benefits of laughter have been well researched. Look here for the benefits of laughter as outlined by The Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association


Now that you have seen the research, here is a clip from one of my favourite movies that consistently makes me laugh. Here is a clip from Patch Adams. Although this is one of my favourite scenes there is a great message in this movie. (And a link to the Gesundheit Institute.)

Exercise time? If it is nice outside, a walk in the fresh air is always a good idea (just stay safely distanced). If you don’t want to go for a walk, maybe you might want to try some Chair Yoga today. All you will need is a stable chair and comfortable clothing.

How about a bit more humour? Here is a YouTube Juggler for Ronald Reagan.

Let’s finish the day with Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis performing That's Amore from the Soundtrack of the Paramount Motion Picture The Caddy, released August 1953. (If you want to sing along, the lyrics can be found here.

I hope you have a great day. Please send me your comments, suggestions for future 'days' or let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

Please send me your feedback. It will help me build a better program for YOU.
