Anatomy of a Laugh

Main complications of persistent high blood pr...Image via Wikipedia

Last week I wrote you a little Joke. If you enjoyed it, here is what it could have done for you according to research.

  • Your heart and lungs are stimulated.
  • Your heart beats faster and your blood pressure rises temporarily.
  • You breath deeper and oxygenate fore 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 in 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 researchers think all this aids digestion.

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