THE ROLE OF HUMOR
Humor has long been recognized as an indispensable tool for maintaining good health and a sense of well-being. However, today too many people feel that laughter is child’s play and life too serious to chuckle.
But hark! Ye potential non-believers and read on.
Recent studies are beginning to demonstrate that laughter can elevate moods, aid creativity, decrease stress, boost the immune system, decrease pain and burn calories!
How can you ward off “hardening of the attitude,” winter blues, stress fatigue and martyrdom? Join the de Nicola Center for Women’s Health and the Institute for the Study of Human Knowledge for two laugh-filled programs with Loretta LaRoche.
