Wonderful advice, Maurice!
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Studies have repeatedly shown that even when we force ourselves to laugh out loud, the benefits are astounding. And although making yourself laugh when you are miserable (and I use "you" not personally, but rather, generically) can be extremely difficult, those same studies show that doing so increases the flow of endorphins in the blood; the feel-good chemicals we all need for a healthy body and mind.

Thank you for sharing this with my visitors and me, Maurice.

P.S. I took the liberty of including a laughing face as an image; it certainly put a smile on my face and laughter in my heart when I first came across it. Feel free to have me remove it, or if you would like to replace it, send me another submission with an appropriate image instead. I'll be happy to make the substitution.
