Laughter is the best medicine

Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body's natural feel good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.

Feeling down…try laughing more!

My Sunshine boys!

Every day is a terrible day for a miserable person, but a cheerful heart has a continual feast. 

Proverbs 15:15 

There is no better way to choose joy daily  than to see the humor in life.  Life gives us so many absurd and ridiculous moments that we cannot help but laugh.

I read that laughter and tears come from the same deep well inside of us.  That is why sometime you can laugh until you cry and some times we cry till we laugh.  I  prefer laughing over crying any day.

A day without laughter is a day wasted.

Charlie Chaplin

Keep your sense of humor when all around you seems to be changing. This is a secret to leading a happy life. Remember Laughter is the best medicine!

The two best physicians of them all -- Dr. Laughter and Dr. Sleep. 

Gregory Dean Jr.

I am smiling at the real truth hid in your statement.

That is why sometime you can laugh until you cry and some times we cry till we laugh.

I have never heard or read that. Always laugh until we cry, never the last part, but ain't it the truth!

What a great candid moment of your Sunshine boys!
For some reason, this post made me think of Dr. Patch Adams who believed happiness - and humor - were key to the healing process. I'd not thought of that movie in ages!
