Every Sunday morning one of my real pleasures is to watch and listen to Joel Osteen.
Yesterday the title of his message was:" The Healing Power of Laughter".A few blogs ago I wrote about "The Magical Healing Energy of Laughter" and after listening to Joel today , the importance of laughter hit me again.
Laughter ,truly is medicine for the soul and the body. The healing power of laughter is stronger,than any medicine we can take. People have come of medicine,just by engaging in laughter daily,not just smiling,but laughter ,that resonates through your whole being.
Joel mentioned,that the average child laughs about 200 times per day and an adult about 4. We need to reconnect with that child within,
Laughter will add years to our life, it will improve our immune system,lower our blood pressure,make us sleep better,increase creativity by triggering the right side of our brain, release endorphins, our natural tranquilizers.
How long has it been since you laughed so much,that you couldn't stop? And that every time you remembered that incident you burst out laughing again?
In these times,more than ever laughter is needed.
Sometimes we are so busy pursuing after our success,that we become too serious.We all desire to stay healthy so we can enjoy our successes.So let's deliberately find time to laugh alot, but laughing so much,that it hurts,but it is a "good" hurt.
Just watch one funny movie or sitcom daily and see how you will feel after one week.And as I mentioned in my other blog, if you can share the laughter with someone else it will double the pleasure and the healing.
