Laughter's A Great Medicine!

Looking for a way to stay healthy during this cold-and-flu season? Try a daily doses of comedy!

According to an article in Woman's Health magazine, laughter...

... raises levels of disease-fighting immunoglobulins by 14 percent
... helps people deal with or forget their physical pain
... increases circulation about as much as a treadmill session
... sharpens creative thinking and ability to recall information
... helps people to effectively adapt to changing circumstances
... produces the feel-good neurotransmitter dopamine in the brain
... helps people bond with new people and read their emotions more accurately

What does all this add up to? Certainly the potential for less stress, improved health, and better relationships. It's not too often that something so enjoyable can be so good for you, so laugh as much as you want! :)

Bitsy's laughing. So can you!
