You Need A Good Laugh

     Everybody knows the old saying, laughter is the best medicine. While that may not be factual as you can't laugh yourself out of a nasty cough or cold, you can laugh yourself into better health and well being. Laughing is a proven self improvement technique. Don't underestimate it.

    Laughter eases tension, reduces stress, boosts the immune system, triggers the "feel-good" endorphins in your body to kick in, and lightens the burden of anger. But did you know that it can actually make you live longer? There was a study done in Norway that proved people with a great sense of humour, who laughed more, lived longer than those that didn't.

    It is also one of those things that can be simulated to then create real laughter. Much like fake smiling long enough actually makes you smile for real and mean it. The same can be done with laughter, if you fake laugh with someone or at their brutal jokes, it can turn into actual laughter. So much so, that there are simulated yoga classes and laugh therapy classes that incorporate "fake" laughter periodically throughout the fitness or therapy class and it has been proven to work.

    I love to laugh and hope you love to laugh too so this is going to be a periodically repeating post where I post some funny videos, pictures, GIF's, or stories that can hopefully bring a smile to your face and bring some laughter into your life. So check out the videos below. Have a laugh and see how it can lift your day up.
