LAUGHTER IS THE MEDICINE OF LIFE
“Laughter is a physical reaction in humans consisting typically of rhythmical, often audible contractions of the diaphragm and other parts of the respiratory system. It is a response to certain external or internal stimuli.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laughter
Well, that’s a pretty dry definition of laughter. It should have started the definition with the joy of laughter. I remember how free it felt to have such a hard laugh that your entire body went stiff. I sure wish I could do that again. Bring back the pure joy your heart felt.
That’s why I have ‘humor’ in my tagline. It’s so important to me and my well-being. If you haven’t had a hard laugh in a while, you should let yourself do it. Why? Because you are now a senior citizen — so there!
Doctors and therapists are beginning to agree that laughing is good for you.
- Relieves stress
- Expands lungs
- Smooths out blood flow
- Increases brain activity
- Works on facial and stomach muscles (and if you really get into it, it will probably exercise your arms and legs too!)
Victor Borge said it best: “Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.”
Remember that love, humor, sharing, and being fearless rules.
