We all need to routinely take part in fun enjoyable activities — those that we are not paid or made to do. Having fun provides us with an opportunity to laugh and to be cheerful. Laughter releases chemicals in our brains that relieve the impact of pain and stress. In fact, laughter can strengthen your heart. A Harvard study revealed that the more you laugh and approach life positively, the fewer chronic diseases you will develop.
On the other hand, those who are constantly negative risk a higher likelihood of developing a chronic ailment, such as hypertension or diabetes. So do yourself some good and take time away from the seriousness of life and find an opportunity to have some fun.
A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength. Prov 17:22 NLT
