Laughter is a good medicine, no joke!

For your immediate stress relief, doctor will order:  laugh!

Mayo Clinic listed some of the short term benefits of a good laugh:

-laughter can stimulate many organs.  Laughter enhances our intake of oxygen rich air, also stimulates our heart, lungs and muscles.  Laughter increases endorphins which are our body’s natural pain reliever released by the brain.

-laughter gives us a good relaxed feeling by activating our body’s stress response.

-laughter soothes tension.  It can stimulate circulation and aid in muscle relaxation.

 

Over the long term laughter continues to be serving our body by helping to improve our overall well being.  The Bible says it too!  A merry heart does good like a medicine but a broken spirit dries the bone-Proverbs 17:22

He nervously looks up and asks, “Lord? Is that you?”

“No, this is the rink manager!”
