Why Laugh? #WellnessWednesday
The Science: (ARTICLE/QUOTES FROM HELPGUIDE.ORG)

"LAUGHTER IS THE BEST MEDICINE
IT’S FUN TO SHARE A GOOD LAUGH, BUT DID YOU KNOW IT CAN ACTUALLY IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH? LEARN HOW TO HARNESS THE POWERFUL BENEFITS OF LAUGHTER AND HUMOR."

"It’s true: laughter is strong medicine. It draws people together in ways that trigger healthy physical and emotional changes in the body. Laughter strengthens your immune system, boosts mood, diminishes pain, and protects you from the damaging effects of stress. Nothing works faster or more dependably to bring your mind and body back into balance than a good laugh. Humor lightens your burdens, inspires hope, connects you to others, and keeps you grounded, focused, and alert. It also helps you release anger and forgive sooner.
With so much power to heal and renew, the ability to laugh easily and frequently is a tremendous resource for surmounting problems, enhancing your relationships, and supporting both physical and emotional health. Best of all, this priceless medicine is fun, free, and easy to use.
As children, we used to laugh hundreds of times a day, but as adults, life tends to be more serious and laughter more infrequent. But by seeking out more opportunities for humor and laughter, you can improve your emotional health, strengthen your relationships, find greater happiness—and even add years to your life."

I've always liked to laugh and find humor in 'situations.' A while back, I attended an event where Michael Jr. | Comedy that inspires | Laughing on Purpose was dishing out clean comedy. Recently, I viewed his comical promotion of his book, Funny How Life Works and his weekly, priceless and humorous Facebook Live, Coco Thursday with one of his daughters. Check out his podcasts, youtubes and other media.

The Word: A merry heart does good, like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones. (NKJV)

Be sure to get your daily dose(s) of laughter!

Expect great things and do them by God's grace and for His glory!
