Laughter is the Best Medicine
“Laughter activates the body’s natural relaxation response. It’s like internal jogging, providing a good massage to all internal organs while also toning abdominal muscles.” (Dr. Gulshan Sethi, Thoracic and Cardiac Surgeon at the Tucson Medical Center and University of Arizona Medical Center.)
Have you had your dose of laughter today?
Laughter is contagious – just hearing a laugh will make you smile and want to join in the fun.
Laughter boosts immunity – it increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, therefore improving your resistance to disease.
Laughter helps you relax and recharge – it stimulates circulation and aids in muscle relaxation.
Carol Burnett, I Love Lucy, Spike Jones, and a good joke will all make you laugh. And that’s just what the doctor has ordered. A smile, a little giggle, or a great big belly laugh will enhance your intake of oxygen-rich air. Your heart, lungs and muscles will be stimulated with the increase of endorphins and your body will be energized. Studies show that laughter really is the best medicine!
