Don't Take Life Too Seriously: Funny Life Quotes

Laughter Really is the Best Medicine....

Laughter can have a positive effect on the mind and body, and it has been found that a good sense of humor is essential in helping to make sure that your mood and emotional state support good health. Laughter is also contagious, so you would also be helping to improve the lives of those around you.

A good laugh can bring your mind and body back into balance by reducing stress, strengthening your immune system, increasing energy levels, and by keeping you more alert and focused.

Laughter can also trigger the release of endorphins which can help promote well-being and can temporarily help relieve pain. Humor can help our heart by increasing blood flow and improving the function of blood vessels, possibly helping to reduce the risk of a heart attack.

This is a wonderful collection of quotes...I too subscribe to the premise that laughter is a good thing. It truly does change us. For sure you can't be mad when you are laughing. Love these.

I have added this to a hub I have written ...actually to two of them...so others can share the fun you provide.

The two hubs are:
