How can something so simple as laughter be so good for us? Using laughter as a support to a healthier life will have strong and lasting ben- efits. A long history of using hu- mor as a strong support for healing therapy has been used since the 14th century. Laughter and emotional resiliency have the following emo- tional rewards of laughter: combats stress; provides moments of joy; eases anxiety and lifts depression: and lightens a threatening situation. The physical advantages of a good laugh stimulates the immune sys- tem; helps to relieve pain; relaxes tense muscles; speeds up oxygen to our bodies; helps regulate the heart rate; helps lower blood pressure and blood sugar in Type-2 diabetes pa- tients. Members were asked to bring a funny story to promote laughter to the next meeting. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations be made, in mmory of Alice J. Bums, to the Cemetery Fund at McMillion United Methodist Church, 358 McMillion Curch Road, Renick, WV 24966.
