Online PR News – 01-September-2011 – – The results of The Co-operative Magazine’s latest poll are out. The Co-operative Magazine asked its readers: ‘They say laughter is the best medicine, so how often do you have a chortle on a good day?’ and found that the majority of respondents, 35 per cent, say they laugh several times an hour.

Of the other options, 15 per cent said they laugh every hour, 30 per cent said they laugh a few times a day, 15 per cent said they laugh about once a day, and only five per cent said they laugh less than once a day. These results show categorically that readers of The Co-operative Magazine are on the whole happy – with 80 per cent laughing at least a few times a day on average.

The health benefits of laughing have been proven by scientists, and recent research showed that health and wellbeing, and friends and family top the list of things that make people happy. On the flip side, another recent study found that work and financial uncertainty are the biggest triggers of stress. The Co-operative Magazine offers its readers moneysaving tips, budgeting advice and health and wellbeing advice in the form of interesting and engaging features. Readers can also ask for expert advice on just about anything to do with finances and health simply by visiting the magazine and navigating to the Family & Finance and Health & Wellbeing sections.

The Co-operative Magazine gives its readers the chance to enter competitions to win great prizes, with previous prizes including tickets to the Edinburgh Festival, children’s Trunki suitcases, vouchers to spend in The Co-operative Food store, and even a Dyson vacuum cleaner – it really is doing its bit to spread happiness to as many people as possible! Readers can now enjoy a new look magazine, with more great stuff to read, more daily news and of course, regular polls to take part in.
