A Success Habit ~Laughter
Boost Your Immune System With Laughter!
There's an old saying, "Laughter does the body good, like medicine"
Make it a habit to watch funny videos when you feel under the
weather, angry, or depressed. Last year, researchers at Loma
Linda University published a study on the results of laughter on the immune system.
They asked volunteers to watch a video of the comedian Gallagher
smashing produce with a sledge hammer.
The researchers noticed that the volunteers showed significant
improvements in several immune-system functions, such as natural
killer cell activity.
In another study, the same researchers found that merely anticipating
watching a funny video improved moods such as anger, tension, and
depression up to 2 days before actually watching the video. It really
is true when they say "laughter is the best medicine."
The next time you go to the video store,
check out the comedy section.
Look through your TV guide for funny
shows, and set your VCR to record them.
To your success,
