FROM OUR SPONSOR: Laughter is the best Medicine

BROUGHT TO YOU BY

UnitedHealthCareLaughter is the best medicine. Find what makes you laugh. It could be as simple as watching “I Love Lucy” reruns or listening to your favorite comedian. When you’re laughing, you don’t have time to be stressed out. Don’t take yourself too seriously – learning to laugh at yourself may change the way stress affects your life.

Keep your sense of humor. A good laugh relaxes muscles, lowers blood pressure and reduces levels of hormones that create stress and suppress immunity. Research shows that facial expression can change a person’s mood – and ultimately their outlook on life.
