They say laughter is the best medicine. It turns out it’s true. And like chiropractic, whose side effects are largely positive, consider a medicine that produces these benefits:
Lowers Stress Hormones
Relaxes Your Muscles
Prevents Heart Disease
Eases Anxiety and Fear
Laughter relaxes our entire body, triggering the release of endorphins. These delightful chemicals give us a sense of well-being and can even temporarily reduce the sensation of pain.
Laughter is contagious. Even more so than a cough or a yawn. The sound of others laughing will surely get you laughing as well. If not, notice that you’re at least smiling and feeling the upbeat vibe.
So, let’s practice! First, some one-liners:
“I’m a light eater. As soon as it’s light, I start eating.”
“Whatever is on the floor will wind up in the baby’s mouth. Whatever is in the baby’s mouth will wind up on the floor.”
“I have CDO. It’s like OCD, but the letters are in alphabetical order as they should be.”
The Chiropractic college instructor pointed to the X-ray. “As you can see,” she says, “the patient limps because his left fibula and tibia are radically arched. Robert, what would you do in a case like this?” “Well,” pondered the student, ‘I suppose I’d limp too.”
