Have you ever wondered why we laugh?
What makes something funny?
One thing everyone pretty much agrees: laughing is fun and makes you feel good.
"Just Laugh" is a fun-filled documentary that explores the many positive benefits
of simply . . . laughing. Scientific proof has shown that a good belly laugh increases
blood circulation, reduces stress, and builds the immune system. Discover how
laughter helps us cope with life's aggravations and anxieties, lowers blood pressure and
improves brain functioning. Looking at the funny side of a situation can help you
relax and be more open to solving any problem, or help you get perspective as to
how "serious" something really is. The average American adult is said to laugh about
fifteen times a day. Compare this to a four-year old, who laughs once every four minutes.
Even medical professionals are utilizing laughter as part of their treatments in
a variety of ways. Regardless of political, religious and social boundaries, laughter
is the universal language everyone understands. It's cheap medicine. A good
prescription for a healthy mind and body is to be sure to take several doses of it
each day. So why not be good to yourself ?
