laugh yourself healthy

I ENJOY SEEING THE FUNNY SIDE OF LIFE. Perhaps it’s a necessary survival tool as the mother of three teens and one pre-teen. But science can back my hunch that having a quiet chuckle and a jolly giggle is genuinely good for my sanity – and my brain. In ‘Laugh Yourself Smarter’ (page 30) we meet a neuroscientist who is also a stand-up comedian (an interesting mix!). His research, both in the laboratory and on the stage, has revealed that laughing boosts our physical and mental wellbeing. In a nutshell, laughing is the perfect workout for your brain. On a more serious note, in ‘Rare Bird’ (page 92) we meet a team of volunteers whose work in New Zealand’s Bay of Plenty region is helping to protect the iconic kiwi, which…

Got It Covered! Today I spotted the January 2020 magazine in a local bookshop. I haven’t read Reader’s Digest for a long time but I was drawn to the creative and spectacular cover. I was very quickly caught up in the production and presentation of the articles. The Dorothy Dix story (‘Dear Miss Dix – This is My Problem’) and accompanying photo is priceless. All in all, I am very pleased I bought a copy. ROB GERMON Sharing Their Story With Us I always look forward to reading each month’s My Story. The writers you choose and their stories are a great and varied mix. I really enjoyed ‘A Sign From Above’ (My Story, February), Richard Whitaker’s journey from an 11-year-old boy to well-respected meteorologist was not only informative but entertaining and, like…

Fake Fur Receives Royal Approval At the age of 93, Queen Elizabeth II has made a notable sartorial statement by removing real fur from her day-today wardrobe. The move was revealed by her senior dresser, Angela Kelly. “If Her Majesty is to attend an engagement in particularly cold weather, fake fur will be used to make sure she stays warm,” she says. The Queen’s ceremonial robes will remain with their fur intact and she won’t get rid of anything she already owns. Nonetheless, Claire Bass, of animal charity, Humane Society International, says the decision will send “a powerful message that fur is firmly out of fashion.” 3D Street Art in the Philippines Promotes Roads Safety With the approval of the Public Works Department and the local government, the roads in Antipolo City, in the Philippines, have…

my story more than just a passport

It was a hot day in May 2010 when I stopped being an Indian. Officially. It happened in a musty little office of the immigration and naturalisation authority in the German city that had come to be my home. I was early for my 3pm appointment with the official responsible for Einbürgerung (naturalisation). As I waited to go in, I felt weighed down by the enormity of what was about to happen. It had been a long road that had brought me to this door: a childhood and youth in India, through university and a 14-year stay in the US and finally to a life of 25 years in Germany. I’d been rooted and uprooted several times, but this is where I’d lived the longest – where I’d struggled to master a…
