                                                                                                                                                                                laughter blog 5Bill Cosby the comedian, said:

Humor can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. Once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it.’

 Victor Hugo:  ‘Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.’

 Yakov Smirnoff: ‘If love is the treasure, laughter is the key.’

 There are few feelings in the world that beat a deep belly laugh. Dr. Lee Berk and Dr. Stanley Tan at the Loma Linda University in California have researched the benefits of laughter and claim that laughing …

  • Lowers our blood pressure
  • Reduces our stress hormone levels
  • Improves our cardiac health
  • Triggers the release of endorphins
  • And last but not least, produces a general sense of well-being. 

According to Ellen deGeneris: ‘We need more kindness, more compassion and more laughter.’

 Last but not least, Charlie Chaplin often repeated ‘A day without laughter, is a day wasted.’

I agree with them all as laughter and humor is something I learned from  my late husband. He used humor daily, so easily that it almost became a habit. I found it much harder to crack jokes while our son was so very ill but when I invited a humor/laughter therapist to give a talk to our support group, we all realized the value of humor.

  To hear the song  S M I L E  , go to Youtube to hear Nat King Cole.
