As you have often heard, laughter is the best medicine! This phrase may be quoted often because laughter relaxes the entire body. It temporarily relieves physical tension and stress. In fact, it can leave your muscles relaxed for forty-five minutes after a good, hearty laugh.
At Hamon, we recommend watching a romantic comedy to relieve your stress! The Library has a selection of rom-com movies on display in the Hamon Commons area on the first floor. If you are looking for a specific title, you may also search the SMU Libraries catalog. If you wish to browse across titles, you can search by subject using the term: romantic comedy films, and even limit by date range for older or more recent videos.
Hamon Arts Library has thousands of movies on DVD and Blue Ray! Reserve your favorite title and pick it up at the services desk or arrange for curbside or locker pick up through the Hamon home page.
If you need help finding a movie title, or anything else this spring, Ask Us. We’re here to help!
