For Better Health, Laugh at Yourself
Study Suggests Link to Overall Health

US MED Gives BackPeople who are able to laugh at themselves may be healthier than their more serious peers, according to a study by the University of California, Berkeley, and the University of Zurich in Switzerland. That ability was linked to good mood, good sense of humor and a more upbeat personality. Study subjects were judged by how much they laughed at photos of themselves. It's the first such study ever done.

The study authors say the ability to laugh at oneself is a distinct trait, separate from general readiness to laugh, and linked to better overall health.

US MED Gives Back

Commonly called belly fat, visceral abdominal tissue (VAT), is the type of fat that becomes packed around vital internal organs.

Excess visceral fat is also called central obesity, but you don't have to be generally obese to have it. With the exception of their "belly," some people with VAT don't look very fat at all.

Exercise Brings Better Sleep
Experience Less Daytime Fatigue

US MED Gives Back

A report in Mental Health and Physical Activity, shows that people who get 150 minutes a week of moderate exercise (or 75 minutes of vigorous exercise) feel less fatigue during the day and sleep better at night.

Researchers studied 3,081 men and women between the ages of 18 and 85 to determine nighttime sleep patterns. Those who met these National Institute of Health exercise guidelines were less likely to report sleepiness during the day, less likely to experience leg cramps while sleeping, and less likely to have difficulty concentrating when tired.

Drive-In Movies Making a Comeback
Outdoor Movie Theatres are Fun, Inexpensive

US MED Gives Back

On June 6, 1933, 79 years ago, the first outdoor movie theater was constructed by Richard Hollingshead. He hung a bed sheet between two backyard trees, mounted a 1928 Kodak projector on his car hood, and used a radio behind the homemade screen for sound. He charged 25-cents per carload of attendees and put concrete slabs under the front wheels so everyone had an unblocked view.
