Had a Healthy Dose of Laughter today?

Why is Laughter good for your health?

  • Laughter relaxes the whole body. A good, hearty laugh relieves physical tension and stress, leaving your muscles relaxed for up to 45 minutes after.
  • Laughter boosts the immune system. Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease.
  • Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.
  • Laughter protects the heart. Laughter improves the function of blood vessels and increases blood flow, which can help protect you against a heart attack and other cardiovascular problems.
Laughter is truly the best medicine we have.  Read this great article on Laughter!

I'd like to give you a little dose of LAUGHTER right now....
Just watch this little video and try not to laugh.

Here's to your health.  Have a great day!
