"Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life."

We believe in setting people on fire - metaphorically, of course - with truly useful knowledge. Hopefully you're laughing, or at least chuckling to yourself right about now, and if you are, it means I've already managed to touch your life in a positive way. Recent years have brought about increased interest in things like laughter yoga, laugh therapy, and many more; all based on the idea that laughter is hugely beneficial to our lives.

Scientific research in the field of sleep and insomnia is confirming that laughter can help improve our sleep patterns by relaxing the mind and body. It's even been shown to improve the effectiveness of insomnia treatments.

Attracts others to us

People are attracted to laughter, and if we're the cause of that laughter, we become that much more attractive. Relationships can be kept fresh and healthy with good humor, and in fact most divorces are a direct result of a humorless marriage.
