The benefits of humor

When you laugh, you are doing something very healthy, you are reducing levels of certain stress hormones. In doing so, laughter provides you with a safety valve, of sorts, that shuts off the flow of stress hormones and the fight-or-flight compounds that quickly take action in your body when you experience stress, anger, or hostility.

Stress hormones suppress the immune system, increasing the number of blood platelets (which can potentially cause obstructions in arteries), and drastically raise blood pressure…very serious stuff, am I not right!?

So…

Remember, when you are laughing, natural killer cells are going to work, assisting in weakening viruses and potentially destroying other illnesses.



Remember, the mind, body and spirit loves a good laugh!
