Let there be more joy and laughter in your living.
January 6 - sweeten your life with laughter
One should take good care not to grow too wise for so great a pleasure of life as laughter.
An old Yiddish proverb says, What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul. Everyone knows that laughter makes you feel good and puts you in high spirits, but did you also know that laughter actually causes physiological responses that protect the body from disease and help your vital organs repair themselves? A good laugh can be compared to a mild workout, as it exercises the muscles, gets the blood flowing, decreases blood pressure and stress hormones, improves sleep patterns and boosts the immune system.
Children are always laughing and adults not so much. We really need to remember to laugh more. It’s so very good for us. Think of laughter as free medicine. If you can find a reason to laugh every day, you'll find that your mood will improve, your relationships with others will seem more meaningful and effortless, and life's hurdles won't seem so daunting. And it’s all free! Don’t forget to take your daily dose!
How sweet it is!
