Seems laughter really IS the best medicine

Neurologist Henri Rubenstein found that one minute of
solid laughter provides up to 45 minutes of subsequent relaxation.

Professor William Fry at Stanford University reported
that 100 laughs will give your body an aerobic workout equal
to that of a ten-minute session on a rowing machine. 

Medically speaking, this is why a damn good laugh is damn good
for you.

The older we become, the more serious we become
about life. An adult laughs an average of 15 times a day;
a preschooler laughs an average of 400 times.

I have been catching up on Hot in Cleveland in an effort to laugh my way into a good mood.  It's working pretty well.  If y'all haven't seen that show it is so funny, you should try it out.

So instead of downloading exercise videos, I am going to start downloading comedians that make me laugh. LOL

That's great! I believe it: my brother showed up for Christmas dinner in his pj's... that started it... we laughed so much, I felt as though I'd done crunchies :)

I should try that some time.  Sure would be more comfy.

My son and I laugh almost everyday. I agreed laughter is the best medicine no need for shots or yucky pills .

This makes sense. When I feel stressed I watch funny stuff on youtube and it destresses me!
