Why Laughter is Important

It’s time for another Stress-Break so let’s take a quick look as to why laughter is important to our health.  Let’s begin with a little story:

 

Taking a Woman to Bed

At 68… If you take her to bed that will be a story.

Go on, have a laugh!  Don’t they say that laughter is the best medicine?  Laughter can do many things. According to the Mayo-Clinic…

In the short term, it can:

  • Stimulate organs such as heart, lungs, muscles.
  • Increases the endorphins that your brain releases
  • Stimulate circulation and cause your muscle to relax.

In the long term, it can:

  • Improve your immune system by increasing positive thoughts – helps to fight stress
  • It can relieve pain
  • Helps you to cope
  • and definitely… improves your mood!

And do you know the best thing of all?  It’s free!  That’s right, they haven’t worked out a way to tax us on laughter just yet, so be thankful for that.

Have you got any good ones to tell us?  Sure love to hear them.  Please leave a comment down below, a joke if you like… anything that will help us to fight stress and relieve pain!  This is why laughter is important… it keeps us all sane!
