It’d be a real hassle to tell you about the hassle I’ve had to deal with today. I bet you’ve had some pressure, strain, or anxiety of your own.
Do you need a little kneading? Been rubbed the wrong way and need a quick rubdown? A massage sounds really good about now, doesn’t it? We can all use a remedy (albeit short term) for the stress in our lives.
And here it is. It’s absolutely free. It’s been medically documented to be a real benefit to your body. And you can experience it as a family, in the comfort of your own home – even yet today! LAUGH!
Yes, laughter is a wonderful medicine. Research conducted by the UCLA Medical School found that there are indeed physical benefits of happiness… and that laughter and joy are the perfect antidote for stress. Did you know that the diaphragm, thorax, abdomen, heart, and lungs are given a massage during a hearty laugh? Yep. That’s the kind of ‘kneading’ and ‘rubdown’ I was referring to. A massage on the inside!
It’s true that you can’t just sit and watch a comedy to totally de-stress and get healthy. You need a balanced approach to health, with exercise and healthy eating as well. But I’m here to remind you that a hearty laugh is great therapy for the body, soul, and spirit. And it’ll build fun memories with your family, too.
