It does a body good

February 6, 2011 – Is there anything better than the sound of a baby’s laughter? I don’t think so.

Laughter is important both mentally and physically, whether you are a child or an adult, because it instantly improves your mood, reduces stress, boosts your immune system, and reduces pain by releasing endorphins.

Like crying, it also releases pent-up emotions, and brings more oxygen into the body with the deeper inhalations.

A wise man once said, “We don’t stop laughing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop laughing.”

Here’s a little something to keep you young. I dare you not to laugh.
