i had a good laugh tonight.
and i mean a really good one. maybe more. and it went on for about 2 hours.
with yummy food in between. if you haven’t tried PELICAN PIZZA, you’ve got to. seriously. the chicken wings are my favorite. YUM.
i was listening to one of pastor’s sermons and he talked about laughter. how a bout of anger decreases immunity for 6 hours and a good whole hearty laugh boosts it for 24 hours. we had our fill for more than a few weeks in one night.
i decided to look up some other benefits of laughter and here are my top 3 favorites (in no particular order).
1. Laughter is a good workout for respiratory, abdominal, leg, back and facial muscles. It tones intestinal functioning, massages abdominal organs and strengthens abdominal muscles. This activity is advantageous for digestion as well as absorption. Laughter also helps burn calories and is beneficial for weight loss. (isn’t that awesome?! there is no better exercise then laughing! you can even do it lying down and minus the sweat!)
2. Laughter relaxes the whole body. (supernaturally natural r&r)
3. Laughter boosts the immune system. decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease. (a merry heart doeth good like medicine! Proverbs 17:22)
SMILE – it’s effects are not just everlasting but life lengthening. WOOHOO! :D
cheers to LOL
