“I would say laughter is the best medicine, but it’s more than that.  It’s an entire regime of antibiotics and steroids.” – Steven Colbert

Studies show that laughter can actually improve your health.  It brings people together in ways that trigger healthy physical and emotional changes in the body.  Laughter strengthens your immune system, boosts mood, diminishes pain, and protects you from the damaging effects of Stress.

Laughter is a powerful antidote to stress, pain, and conflict, and no matter your diagnosis, it’s important to infuse humor into your life when possible.  Humor lightens your mood, inspires hope, creates powerful connection, and keeps you grounded, focused, and attentive.

Quite simply, laughter is good for the body, soul and mind.  Grab a family member or friend and watch a funny television show or movie, you’ll feel better instantly!
