The Lighter Side of Fitness
Part Two

Laughter is good medicine. This old saying is now validated by scientific studies. Researchers Patrick & Gael Crystal Flanagan write, “Laughter is a form of internal jogging that exercises the body and stimulates the release of beneficial brain neurotransmitters and hormones”.

Psychiatrist Robert Holden adds, “Smiling and laughing produce happy chemicals called endorphins which work in the brain to give an overall feeling of well-being.” Exercise does the same thing.
