"A cheerful heart is like medicine to the bones ..." Prov. 17:22
Studies have shown that laughter is a powerful medicine! Nothing brings the body back into balance like a good hearty time of laughter. It's power to relax the entire body, boost the immune system, and protect the heart as the blood flow increases with every belly jolt, is nothing short of amazing! The problem lies in that somewhere between childhood and adulthood, life begins to rob us of this powerful health transforming behavior; kids laugh on an average of 300 to 500 times a day as oppose to adults who average a measly 15. Which means the "no-brainer" thing to do is try to "lighten up!" Take time to search for, and find, the funny side of life ... and then ... let it rip! For our health sake, let's begin to develop a habit of laughter. Maybe together we can raise the average daily adult laughs to 50 and while we are at it gain a healthier mental state.
