International Moment of Laughter Day
It’s International Moment of Laughter Day! Even in the midst of hardship, it is important to laugh loudly and laugh often. Watch a funny movie, read an amusing book, share your favorite jokes, and indulge in some good old-fashioned silliness to celebrate the occasion.
In addition to spreading joy, laughter has many health benefits. Studies have shown that there is indeed some truth to the old saying, "laughter is the best medicine." Laughter can act as an antidote to pain, stress, and conflict. It also strengthens our immune systems, boosts circulation, and relaxes muscles.
Whether you giggle, chuckle, chortle, cackle, or guffaw, share a moment of laughter with your family today. Happy International Moment of Laughter Day!
