THURSDAY, JULY 18 WORLD LISTENING DAY Tune in to nature! Take time today to listen to the birds—you’ll feel calmer in seconds, say scientists in the U.K. They asked people to listen to sounds recorded from natural and artificial environments while monitoring their heart rate and brain activity. The results? Only those listening to nature sounds had decreased activity in the brain region that ramps up the fight-or-flight response and increased activity in the region that calms the body. For best results, the authors advise choosing a sound that’s familiar to you (like rainfall) instead of a foreign one (like a rain forest). WEDNESDAY, JULY 17 NATIONAL HOT DOG DAY Dress up a dog!

“spreading joy and laughter transforms us, body, mind and spirit!”

Kevin Gatlin pulled out of the hospital parking lot, sighing as his wife, Deidra, stroked his arm. “I just hate to see him like that,” Kevin said, heartbroken as the image of their friend’s son, who was stuck in a hospital bed, flashed through his mind. Fighting a chronic illness, the boy seemed bored and depressed, with only a video game to keep him occupied during long days of tests and doctors’ visits. “What if it was our son? What could we do to help him occupy his time?” the North Carolina father reflected. “Something fun…something to make him smile.” The couple began brainstorming, and by the time they arrived home, had figured out just what that something was.

Research shows that laughter eases anxiety and increases our overall happiness. 3 Smiling protects the heart! A study published in the journal Psychological Science revealed that smiling—even if you’re not feeling happy—protects the heart from negative stressors and lowers blood pressure.…
