LOL. It's Good for You!

Studies on humor and laughter from Duke University, Loma Linda University, UCLA,
and even from other countries such as Great Britain have shown:
  • Laughing helps relax tense muscles.
  • Laughter reduces the production of stress hormones.
  • Laughter and a positive attitude strengthen the immune system. 
  • Laughter allows a person to 'forget' about aches and pains and perceive pain as less intense.
  • A good laugh is like an aerobic workout for the heart and lungs--increasing the body's ability to use oxygen.
  • Laughter helps lower high blood pressure.
  • There are no known negative side effects to laughter.
