Laughing - it can save your life!

Posted June 26th, 2014 @ 9:49am

According to two studies, laughing is one of the best things you can do for your body.

Researchers conducting the first study found that laughing does a great job of widening of your blood vessels’ interior linings. This causes an increase in blood flow and a decrease in lumping, which are both excellent for the heart.

The scientists behind the second study found that laughing helps memory and stress.

So, if you make a habit of laughing often, you’re reducing your chances of heart disease, keeping calm, and improving the health and effectiveness of your brain.

It’s almost like a magic pill that could keep you healthy and happy into very old age. And, it’s free. (Huffington Post)
