• For Your Health, Learn To Laugh

  • happy-286152_640Laughter is strong medicine for mind and body.

    Laughter is also infections. The sound of giggling or raring laughter is more contagious than any cough, sniffle or sneeze.

    Beside binding people, laughter triggers healthy physical changes in the body. Humor and laughter strengthens your immune system, boost your energy, diminishes pain and protects you from the damaging effects of stress.

    Laughing out loud, being quietly amused, anticipating something funny, and even forcing a smile or chuckle can all lead to increases in positive emotions and neutralize negative emotions, which can help keep us on the “upward spiral” to greater happiness.

    Laughter is a great medicine. It is free. It is fun and it is easy to use.
