Put More Laughter In Your Life

Filed Under: Heart Health

Did you know that children laugh an average of 400 times a day, while adults giggle only 15? Somewhere on the way to adulthood we lose the ability to laugh 385 times a day!

Up your laughter quotient with comedy videos or playing with your kids, grandkids, nieces, or nephews. In one study with cardiac patients, which lasted more than a year, individuals who watched a comedy show on a daily basis had significantly lower stress hormone levels and blood pressure levels, and they needed less medication.

Dr. Sinatra and I personally love to laugh along with Jerry Seinfeld, George Carlin, or Robin Williams. Dr. Sinatra is also a huge fan of Planes, Trains, and Automobiles and never fails to laugh and laugh every time he watches that movie.
