Laughter is good for the soul!

“Your sense of humor is one of the most powerful tools you have to make certain that your daily mood and emotional state support good health.” ~ Paul E. McGhee, Ph.D.

  1. Laughter relaxes the whole body. A good, hearty laugh relieves physical tension and stress, leaving your muscles relaxed for up to 45 minutes after.
  2. Laughter boosts the immune system. Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease.
  3. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.
  4. Laughter protects the heart. Laughter improves the function of blood vessels and increases blood flow, which can help protect you against a heart attack and other cardiovascular problems.

We got OUR "laugh on" at the Pechanga Comedy Club in Temecula, CA, as we saw Comedian Legend ("King of Clean Comedy)...AJ Jamal and up and coming Actor/Comedian, Brandon T Jackson (seen in Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, Big Momma 3 and Fast & Furious.)
