Have you Laughed Today?

They say very young children laugh an average of 400 times a day.  When we become adults our average daily number of laughs dwindles to a not so funny total of 5.  Laughter is called the "second heart" because the pumping action it causes in the diaphragm boosts the body's blood flow.  A good belly laugh also helps the lymphatic system to remove toxins from the body.  It reduces stress, increases oxygen intake, strengthens the immune system and best of all, it makes us happy and helps us to connect with people. It is a win win.  Don't take life seriously all the time.  Laughing needs to be a big part of ours lives.

Seek out those things that make you laugh.  Be happy, laugh and may God bless you and yours.
