Anatomy of a Laugh

Hilarious Funny GirlAnatomy of a Laugh

Your whole body gets a kick out of a good chuckle. Here’s what happens when you laugh, according to research.

  • Your heart and lungs are stimulated.
  • your heart beats faster and your blood pressure rises temporarily.
  • You breathe deeper and oxygenate more blood.
  • Your body releases endorphins, your own natural pain killers, and you produce more immune cells.
  • You burn seventy-eight times as many calories as you would in a resting state.
  • Your diaphragm, facial muscles and internal organs all get bounced around a message sometimes called “internal jogging”

After you’ve laughed, your muscles and arteries relax. That’s great for easing pain. Also, your blood pressure lowers and your pulse drops below normal. Some reachers think all this aids digestion.

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
Proverbs 17:22

The New Engish Bible translation of that verse says that “a merry heart makes a cheerful countenance, but low spirits sap a man’s strength.

Laughing Zebra“We don’t laugh because we’re happy,
we’re happy because we laugh.”
William James

When I read the following story I couldn’t stop laughing; I love crazy things that make you laugh: SAD NEWS – Please join me in remembering YET ANOTHER great icon of the entertainment community. The Pillsbury Dough Boy died yesterday of a yeast infection and traumatic complications from repeated pokes to the belly. He was 71. Dough Boy is survived by his wife Play Dough, two children, John Dough and Jane Dough, plus they had one in the Oven. Services were held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

Genuine humor points out the weakness of humanity, but without contempt. It is a commentator on life, not a critic of it. Its purpose is to uplift, not tear down, and to lighten the burdens of others, not add to them.
Good humor does not belittle or promote stereotypes because it comes from the heart, not the mind. It is a shock absorber that helps us get over the bumps in life.

Love, live, laugh! Laugh at the unexpected, or maybe a one liner.
*When you don’t know what you are doing, do it neatly.
*The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.
*Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted.

*Don’t take life too seriously, you won’t get out alive.
*Some cause happiness wherever they go. Others, whenever they go.

Mark Twain said, “Timing plus misfortune equals humor.” So now, every time something happens that I consider a misfortune I say, “Just wait, in time we will look back at this moment, and have a good laugh.”
