Keeping Us Healthy!

About this Activity


When was the last time you laughed so hard that your stomach hurt?  Remember how good it felt? Remember how happy it made you? Laughing isn’t just fun, it’s healthy.

Laughter has been scientifically proven to be good for our health and happiness.  Laughter lowers blood pressure, boosts our immune system, and increases our happiness levels. Sharing a laugh with friends and family is a wonderful way to express love, relieve stress, and shift perspective on our lives. There is so much information about laughing that I am not able to share it all here, but search for the importance of laughing online, and you will be surprised at all the information available.  What a wonderful way to help keep us healthy. Even voluntary, purposeful laughing is good for us and usually leads to spontaneous laughing, which is even funnier.

Find your laugh today by watching a funny movie, reading jokes, or try fake laughing with friends and see what happens.
