I'd like to introduce you to my friend Melvin
Although he may seem like just a little monkey, Melvin represents the power each of us has to lead with love, calm our body with our breathing, and find ways to have more fun in life. For me, he's been a game changer. And I'm excited to share the power of Melvin and healthy humor with you all here!
I'm currently building out this site as my non-profit passion project continues to evolved, so please be patient with me. To get started, I hope you'll check out the Humor Mindset Survey where you can help us help you right now by sharing some information for our current research study.
Then, go on over to the see funny page to check out some healthy (family-friendly) humor right now!
We've organized these videos in two sections, first for COVID-19 comedic relief and then for some timeless healthy humor.
Remember, it's not about being funny but seeing funny that holds the power to create a healthier, happier, more resilient and positively adaptable brain. And you'll become positively contagious as a result!
With lots of love and healthy humor,
Heidi and Melvin
