Get your giggle on!

people laughing

Of course it feels good to share a hearty laugh, but did you know it's good for your body, too?

Studies show that laughing lowers your blood pressure, reduces stress hormone levels and boosts immunity.

It even gives you a mini-workout without going to the gym! Laughing causes your stomach muscles to expand and contract – just like crunches do. It also gets your heart pumping, and burns about the same number of calories as a slow walk.

So, read the comics, crack a joke or just be silly with your kids – it will be just what the doctor ordered!
