A life without hope is a set up for dis-orders and dis-eases. Millions of people are dealing with a health problem that can be linked directly to a broken spirit. " A happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing, but a broken spirit dries up the bones" (Proverbs 17:22 AMP).
Problems ranging from chronic headaches, the inability to get a restful sleep, hypertension, lack of energy and much more can be a result of a "sad heart".
Our bodies are a wonderful machine, capable of healing itself but we have to fuel it with the proper things for it to operate optimally. It has been proven that laughter is one of the best medicines for the body. People who are constantly sad, who have no you and laughter in their lives are at about a 40% increased risk of developing a heart attack sometime in the lifetime.
Apply laughter to your life daily, using humor as the ignition to the waves of your brain. A visit to the greeting card section of any store, the funny section of the newspaper, a "field trip" to the bookstore or even as you are driving along catching glances of a bumper sticker or a billboard can all be your source for daily laughter. Whatever your source, just use the the tools of humor to induce laughter for your health, healing and general sense of well-being.
So the next time you feel sad, depressed, or hopeless...first say a prayer to your Creator, sit down with a book, (i.e. Laughter the Best Medicine II) and just laugh.
