Feel Good Friday: Can you Chewbacca?
We’ve been mentioning the last little while, and I’m sure many of you can personally relate, that the holidays aren’t always filled with cheer and joy. So we thought for this week’s FGF it might be nice to share something simple, mindless, and laughable to help you take your mind off some of the holiday stress you may be experiencing - even if it’s just for a couple minutes (or maybe you’ll watch it a few times over, like I did)!
Star Wars fans might particularly enjoy this little video, but personally I’m not really a fan and still found myself laughing. In honour of the newest Star Wars movie release last week (The Last Jedi), Cut entertainment company recruited 100 strangers to give their best Chewbacca impersonation. Anyone who knows the famous and indescribable noise Chewbacca makes knows that it is no simple task to imitate, but watching and hearing these people try is some fabulous comedic relief. Check it out and maybe even share, we can all use a little mindless entertainment this time of year!
The idea of Feel Good Fridays started because we believe the simple things that bring a smile to our face, are some of the best things. Smiling and laughing has been proven to reduce stress in our lives! When we smile or laugh it releases neurotransmitters in our brain called endorphins, which are in charge of making us happy and helping to relieve stress.
Remember to check back for next week’s Feel Good Friday!
