Physical Benefits of Laughter

Studies have shown many positive physical benefits from mirthful laughter. These include:

1. Deeper respirations with increased oxygen to your brain

2. Temporarily lowered blood pressure

3. Enhanced immune system function

4. Reduced aches and pains from endorphin release

5. Decreased levels of cortisol and adrenalin (stress chemicals)

6. Reduced muscle tension

Are you getting a minimum of thirty (30) mirthful laughs per day? If not, your body and immune system are waiting!
