What if your doctor gave you a prescription that read, "Listen to two jokes
and call me in the morning." Of course, that sounds far-fetched, but research
shows that laughing at a good joke can help improve your health. It can also
reduce your stress hormones, stimulate your immune system, and reduce your blood
pressure. The author Norman Cousins even credited laughter with helping him
recover from a painful disease. So come by the library, have a few laughs on us,
and listen while writer and registered nurse Arlene Jech describes how putting a
little laughter in your life can help you feel better.
