A happy heart is like good medicine, but a broken spirit drains your strength. -Proverbs 17:22 NCV
Laughter makes us feel wonderful all over.
The medicine community and spiritual community are in agreement about the value of laughter. Just like a good feeling after a workout, we have laugh muscles (fifteen to be exact) that get involved when we laugh.
We change physiologically when we laugh.
We stretch muscles throughout our face and body, our pulse and blood pressure go up, and we breathe faster, sending more oxygen to our tissues and boost immune cells to our bodies.
It is Biblical if you continually sustain laughter in your life, it will keep your heart healthy and happy.
Then they were filled with laughter, and we sang happy songs. Then the other nations said, The Lord has done great things for them. The Lord has done great things for us, and we are very glad. -Psalm 122:2-3 NCV
