Health Benefits of a Hearty Laugh :-)


Science has definitely confirmed that we can actually laugh our way to good health.
In support of the popular adage, "Laughter is the best medicine,"
Dr.Francisco Contreras of Mexico's Oasis of Hope Hospital states that
"one bout of anger will diminish the efficiency of your immune system for 6 hours,
but one good laugh will increase the efficiency of your immune system for 24 hours."
Besides boosting our immune system, a hearty laugh also~
* Stimulates our heart and lungs.
* Makes our breathe deeper and oxygenate more blood.
*Makes our body release endorphins or natural pain-killers.
* Makes us burn 78 times more calories.
The residual effects of laughter also~
* Make our muscles and arteries relax, which helps ease pain.
* Lower our blood pressure and makes our pulse drop below normal.
* Help in our digestion.
* Reduce stress and decrease anxiety.
