Bobby Dillard's curator insight, May 10, 2014 4:54 PM

You have heard it time and again – laughter is the best medicine. Humor and mirth offer a multitude of preventive and healing effects and a new study is offering more evidence that laughter has quantifiable benefits for the brain.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 10, 2014 8:42 PM

Children laugh up to 300 times a day and adults an average of 5 times a day. If school were fun and enjoyable for children and adults, perhaps we would laugh more.

Fatima Formariz's curator insight, May 23, 2014 8:49 AM

Laughter has healing effects, easy medecine.
