$5,000 No fooling here!

After 5 weeks and 2 days of fundraising the All Stars, Disco Ninjas, and Mighty Mights have raised over $5,000! The Lift It Up Cup was a huge success and it was amazing to see everybody work so hard to help raise money for our 3 local organizations. I didn't forget that it was still a competition and there has to be a winner so...... the winner of the Lift It Up Cup with $2,318 raised is the All Stars! Great job to the green monsters!I hope everybody in our CFG community had a chance to get to know a little more about these great organizations and what they are trying to accomplish. We will see you all again next year!

Have You Laughed Today?

We know exercise is good for our health, and we're aware of the many benefits of healthy eating. We know that sleep is imperative to growth, defying aging, and recovery and we even attempted the gallon of water per day challenge to take advantage of the many good things H2O does for our bodies. But how about a less advertised way to keeping our spirits up, stress levels down, and our relationships meaningful. Better yet, what if it's easy and enjoyable? Just a friendly reminder that laughter is a great way to accomplish all of these goals!

While research on the benefits of laughter is still in its early stages, some promising evidence is beginning to surface. Laughter has been shown to correlate with increased levels of self-esteem as well as lower levels of stress in college students (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1475938/) and adolescents (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24280475).

Even more interesting, while we can all agree that laughing with a friend tends to lead to an overall positive feeling, a recent study tested whether these positive effects carry over to future interactions. Results show some pretty convincing evidence that laughing with someone improves intimacy and positive emotions experienced in the next social interaction, even if we interact with someone different (http://toddkashdan.com/articles/Kashdan%20etal%202013%20shared%20laughter%20PAID.pdf).

Yet another reason to remember to chuckle each day, even if it is at ourselves.

I've got you covered for today with the clip below – but I dare you to post better in the comment section!
