Today's Tip #24 from "30 Quick Tips for Better Health" by Don Verhulst, MD., Laugh Your Way To WELLNESS. This is an amazing tip...I learned that if you laugh you can reduce your stress quite a bit. I had been watching the move The Secret; it is about laws of attraction, creating abundance in your life. In the movie a woman discovers she has breast cancer...for 6 months she stayed away from stress and watched nothing but comedies and laughed all the time. She also repeated over and over, thank you for my healing. When she went to the doctor the cancer was decreasing without medication...she continued to stay away from stress, laugh, watch comedies, and continued to thank God for her healing. It is an amazing story, and a true story at that. What makes this tip so amazing, which I just learned; laughing releases endorphins into your blood stream. Laughter can help the body destroy cortisol, the major stress hormone that can cause high blood pressure, fat around the abdomen and most importantly PREMATURE AGING. Now I know we can all use some of that no matter what age we are. Even if we force a laugh out of us at least 3 times a day...we can be melting the fat way from our bellies. Anyone who is now in their 40's, somehow we get this crazy stomach that looks like we are pregnant...so now we can seriously just laugh it off. So keep watching your funny movies and laugh until you cry!!!
There it is...Let's laugh until our bodies are nice and thin!!!
