Have you walked today?

With all the fancy, hi-tech ways to workout and stay in shape these days it’s easy to forget the benefits of walking.

Yeah, I know it sounds really boring, but walking has tons of health benefits with almost no bad side effects (like more intense activities have).

Check out the article below from Phil Mutz at Little Things for a dose of walking motivation.

“From a very young age, I was taught that exercise is good for my health. This may seem pretty obvious, but that doesn’t mean I always make exercise a priority. After all, going to the gym every day can be an extremely large commitment.” – Phil Mutz

Have you heard about this new wellness practice – laughter yoga?

I think we all intuitively feel laughter is good for us, but some people are taking the idea a step further.

Sarah Bourassa at Huffington Post offers her experience with laughter yoga in the article below.

“The practice is a combination of laughing exercises and yoga breathing in a group setting. It’s based on voluntary laughing, which often induces real laughter. Laughing is known to have several health benefits, including improving your immune system, relieving pain, reducing stress and boosting your mood.” – Sarah Bourassa

Here’s a fun, new article over on Screen Rant that lists movies that should’ve gotten a sequel, but didn’t.

Movie blogger, Rob Keyes, posted this article earlier today (1-31-16), and I wanted to share it here for all my movie-lover friends.

Check out Rob’s list of movies that deserve a sequel below.

“In an age where all popular entertainment properties seem targeted as potential franchises via spinoffs, sequels, prequels, reboots, etc., not all films get a followup, even if they deserve one.” – Rob Keyes
