Rules for Living: Laughter medicine 

Why are children often happy?Children laugh, on average, 300 times a day. Adults laugh only about 17 times a day. That’s probably why Jesus tells us to be more like children.

When you laugh, your body releases feel-good chemicals called endorphins. Releasing endorphins can help increase the body’s natural painkilling response, and also improves your mood.

Laughing also exercises several muscles in the body, including your abdomen, back, shoulders, and facial muscles. Laughter is a great workout for your respiratory system too. Much like physical activity, such as running, which increases the endorphins that are released by your brain, laughter has the same effect on your body.

Want to keep the doctor away? An apple could sometimes be out of reach but laughter never is. It’s always in you. So, laugh it out!
