At North Metro Woman we are all about discovering new ways to stay happy and healthy.  Oftentimes it takes a lot of hard work and dedication, but sometimes, there are things you can do that are very simple and easy that can also make a HUGE difference in your quality of life.

One of them being –have a laugh!

We’ve all heard the saying “laughter is the best medicine” and some will scoff that it’s just another cliche, but there are plenty of medical journals and professionals to back up this claim that laughter indeed improves everything from stress relief to increasing your body’s immunity from certain diseases and ailments.

According to the Mayo Clinic’s article on Stress Management laughter has both short term and long term affects on the body.  The simple response of laughter increases oxygen-rich air and releases neuropeptides which stimulate your body’s organs and stress relieving hormones.

On an emotional level, laughter also helps you to connect with other people.  So, if you would like to try a little laughter, in the name of good health, and just for fun this weekend.  Here are some places in the North burbs to make you smile.

What better way to enjoy a Colorado summer night than to sit under the stars at CUs lovely sandstone campus.

North Metro Woman checked it out and there is not a bad seat in the house.  Enjoy the silliness of Shakespeare’s ridiculous rip roaring lampoon that turns enemies into lovers in the most ridiculous set of scheming and happenstance imaginable.

“Much Ado About Nothing” is playing from August 2-13th. at the Mary Rippon Outdoor Theatre.

Other great comedies to be found around town:

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler “Restless Leg Tour”    This dynamic duo is at the Bellco Theatre in Denver at the Colorado Convention Center.   Sept. 30th- Oct. 1st.   For other, less famous,  live comedy acts to see this weekend check out the Comedy Works website.

Game of Tiaras (youth theatre) at  the Northglenn Arts Center August 4-6th.  Parson’s Theatre 1 E. Memorial Parkway, Northglenn.  An aging king in a Magical Kingdom decides to split his kingdom between his three daughters, Belle, Cinderella and the Snow Queen.

Unlike the infamous “Game of Thrones” it plays on, here you’ll find a silly tragedy that is sure to bring  laughter to even the youngest family members.
