Laughter is the Best Medicine
By Nancy Ryerson, ADC Activities Manager
It is said that laughter is the best medicine. In my life and work as the ADC Activities Manager, I find this true. When you address a daily situation with laughter, you create an atmosphere that lightens the mood and lifts someone's spirits. As Charlie Chaplin said, "A day without laughter is a day wasted." When you are happy and positive it creates a chain reaction among those around you. Laughter is beneficial both physically and psychologically. It lowers your blood pressure, reduces stress hormones, and strengthens the body's ability to fight disease. Go ahead, have a good laugh!
