June 17, 2015 - Laughter Really is the Best Medicine!


Wednesday, June 17, 2015 - I admit that living in today’s uncertain times is no laughing matter, but finding ways to bring a little mirth into our lives can be a big benefit. When life is taken too seriously, we are missing out on one of the greatest health boosting habits around - Laughter.Smile

Some of the benefits are:
•    Stimulates the heart and lungs.
•    Relieves stress and strengthens the immune system.
•    Enhances the intake of oxygen, stimulates circulation and relaxes the muscles.
•    Triggers the release of endorphins
•    Lowers blood sugar levels and lowers blood pressure.
•    Broadens thinking and makes people smarter and more productive.
•    Allows for adaptation to changing circumstances and spurs creativity.

To gain some of these benefits spend more time with happy and amusing family and friends – especially little children - who may laugh over 300 times a day. And, above all, look for and appreciate the humor in everyday life.
