A joke a day keeps the doctor away…

Laughter has health benefits…no joke!  Take a look at a few of the benefits — and then get your laugh on with a few ‘healthy’ jokes.

Short – Term Benefits

Not only do a few giggles release the tension and stress, but actually stimulate physical changes in your body.

–          Stimulate your organs.  Laughter increases your oxygen intake, stimulates your heart, lungs and muscles.  End result: releases feel-good endorphins from your brain.

–          Activate and release your stress response.  By laughing – you actually increase your heart rate and blood pressure giving you a relaxed feeling.

–          Soothe tension and stomachaches.    Laughter can also ease digestion and stimulate circulation, which helps reduce the physical feeling of stress.

Long – Term Benefits

–          Improve your immune system.  Positive thoughts activate responses that actually help fight stress and potentially more-serious illnesses. 

–          Relieve pain.  Laughter actually causes your body to produce natural painkillers.  Say good-bye to tension headaches!

–          Increase personal satisfaction.  Laughter can make a negative situation a little bit easier.  Turn that frown upside down!
