The Path of Laughter (Part 2)

A Reason to Laugh

“I am thankful for laughter except when milk comes out my nose.”  - Woody Allen

One of my fondest memories from my childhood is sitting at the kitchen table in the mornings with my two brothers and three sisters eating our breakfast. Sometimes we had cereal with milk. Inevitably one of us would trigger an orchestra of laughter and milk would start squirting out from our noses. 

I will always cherish those mornings and the laughter we shared. 

The next time you get together with friends and family, make a point to laugh and enjoy yourself. Life is too short and every moment we have with each other is precious. 

As a gift to yourself and others, embrace the path of laughter, and fully experience its beauty, energy, and wonderful benefits. Share it with others often. It’s free, abundant, and most of all it’s fun! 

Laughter is a mild cardiovascular exercise which oxygenates the blood. Through active laughter, old stale air, along with carbon dioxide and other waste gases are expelled from the lungs which makes room for fresh air to enter, thereby, increasing oxygen levels in the lungs and on into the bloodstream. 

Laughter has so many benefits. Here are 10 great reasons why we should laugh more:

  • Burns calories
  • Increases blood flow
  • Reduces stress
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Reduces pain
  • Decreases anxiety
  • Enhances creativity
  • Improves relationships
  • Improves frame of mind
  • Improves digestion

People who laugh tend to be happier, more confident, and successful. Their ability to problem-solve and remember things comes easier too. 

Try to make a daily intention to laugh more, reap the benefits, and have fun!
