The Medicine of Laughter

“Even if there is nothing to laugh about, laugh on credit.”

I read something this weekend that said the average person laughs only 15 times a day.

Then I started thinking… do I even get in 15 laughs a day?  Some days, probably not even close.

So I decided to challenge myself.  Starting today I am making it a goal to laugh at least 15 times a day, preferably more.  Before he left for work this morning, Captain Cavedweller made me laugh three times. Only 12 more to go to reach my goal!

You might be asking yourself, what’s the big deal about laughing? I’ll give it to you in a nutshell… laughter is like medicine except without the awful after taste or feeling bad.

Like a bad cold, though, humor is infectious. The sound of warm laughter is far more contagious than any cough, sniffle, or sneeze.

Laughter increases happiness and ties people together.  Also, laughter triggers healthy physical changes in the body. Humor and laughter are proven to strengthen your immune system, boost your energy, diminish pain, and protect you from the damaging effects of stress. Best of all, laughter is fun, free, and easy to use. Laughter is a people magnet. You can take it with you wherever you go and share it all you want. The supply is limitless and the opportunities are endless.

I found an informative website that highlights all the great benefits of laughter. Check it out.

So who is with me?

Let’s see how many laughs we can get in today!
