Laughter is the best medicine.
"Laughter is the best medicine."
This folk saying may have more than a grain of truth to it. Researchers, who recently learned that depression weakens the immune system, are now wondering if humor might strengthen it, improving a patient’s chances of surviving a illness. In any chase, humor does help reduce the effects of stress. A belly laugh can be shown to improve breathing, reduce muscle tension and help digestion. And appropriate humor often relieves the stress and tension of those around you.
