A sense of humor can go a long way to improving your overall health.
 

Stress is nothing to joke about but a little laughter can help. A sense of humor isn’t a cure-all but it can go a long way to improving your overall health.

A healthy laugh ...
• Stimulates your heart, lungs and muscles
• Increases healthy endorphins released by your brain
• Improves your immune system
• Soothes tensions
• Can relieve pain
So go ahead, give it a shot. Let’s hear your heartiest laugh. 


Nothing funny?
“Have you heard the one about the doctor who told his patient to stop using Q-Tips?  It went in one ear and out the other.”

Remember, always keep a great big guffaw or at least a few giggles handy.   A little laughter will always do you good.
