For Dolores Ann, my aunt who recently relocated to her heavenly home....LAUGHTER REALLY IS THE BEST MEDICINE......
Humore truly is infectious, more than a cough, a sneeze, or a sniffle. Get a good tear reeling, belly busting, pee inducing laugh going and just watch those around you smile and laugh right along with you. You feel better for the laugh and those around you feel better. There are many reasons that everyone feels better after a good laugh:
1) Laughter relaxes the body-muscles relax for up to 45 minutes
2) A good laugh improves the immune system-immune cells are solicited to release infection fighting antibodies
3) Exercising your funny bone protects your heart-laughter increases blood flow which improves cardiac functions, lowers blood pressure and protects against strokes.
4) A good sense of humor improves your mood-When laughing, endorphins are released that promote a sense of well being as well as decreasing pain and inflammation.
So carry on, laugh a lot; its cheap, easy and free medicine.
RIP Dolores Ann
