Your Self - Body
Laugh or Stress Out
Huge Affects

Stress is good to have if we need to run from danger or fight back when attacked. But that's about it. While stress is a normal reaction to what life brings, if it is too much in our lives it will have negative effects on us body and soul. To be healthy we must learn how to deal with stress effectively.

On the other hand laughter is good for us in every way. There's never been one instance when too much laughter was harmful (unless you laugh so hard you 'split a gut').

People who have a sense of humor, laugh easily and often actually live longer than those who don't. Laughter actually "activates the chemistry of the will to live and increases our capacity to fight disease. Laughing relaxes the body and reduces problems associated with high blood pressure, strokes, arthritis, and ulcers. Some research suggests that laughter may also reduce the risk of heart disease. Historically, research has shown that distressing emotions (depression, anger, anxiety, and stress) are all related to heart disease.

A study done at the University of Maryland Medical Center suggests that a good sense of humor and the ability to laugh at stressful situations helps mitigate the damaging physical effects of distressing emotions," according to fight-aging.com. 

Stress can:
-age you
-make you tired, drained
-cause sleeping problems
-create headaches
-cause diarrhea
-create anxiety and depression
-cause serious health problems

Laughter can:
-keep you young
-energize & relax you
-reduce stress & its affects
-lower blood pressure
-boost immune system
-elevate your mood
-heal and prevent disease

HelpGuide.org has lots of great information on the power of laughter over stress HERE.

No one wants stress. Everyone loves a good laugh. So why not choose to laugh instead of stress out?

It's one easy way to take care of yourself!
