2. Seinfeld Lowers Blood Pressure – What’s Up With That?

Did you hear the one about how watching comedy can lower
your nerves?

Researcher Edward O’Brien from the Marywood University in
Scranton, Pennsylvania discovered that college students
who watch Seinfeld before public speaking had
heartbeats between 80-85 beats per minute; while those
that didn’t watch the comedy experienced an average of 100
beats per minute while they spoke.

Sounds like yet another example of the power of even
a small dose of humor to calm our nerves. And if it
applies to speaking in public, how about using humor to
calm our nerves before an important business meeting, job
interview or before performing brain surgery (for those
brain surgeon enthusiasts out there)?
2. Mike’s Fun at Work Tip

Traffic cops in India are handing out roses to
traffic violators instead of tickets, in the hopes that
a little education and a fun, positive reminder will be
more effective at reducing minor traffic violations.
So why not apply this principle to the workplace, and
offer some fun rewards in the spirit of educating
folks in a positive way to bring about some changes
for minor “office violations.”
3. Quote of the Week

“Strange, when you come to think of it, that of all the
countless folks who have lived before our time on the
planet not one is known in history or in legend to have
died of laughter.” Sir Max Beerbohm
4. It’s a Wacky, Wacky World

An 82-year-old woman in Los Angeles was fined $114 for
for walking too slowly across a crosswalk!!!

Happy Hump Day everyone. And please, watch your speed
