 :D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

So when Floyd asked me if I would be interested in running a laughing club, I ummm naturally laughed, so did my partner for that matter.

A Laughter Club you may well ask, why ??

Well I'm guessing there would be a lot of people in the over 55's whom may not have had a good belly laugh for sometime.  Also some of you younger ones that may well be reading this that goes for you too!!

Laughing make for great health, all you need is your sense of humour, what's that you say? you haven't seen it for awhile, well come along when we start and let us help you find it again  ;D

Laughter To be sure - here are some of the known health benefits of laughter -
   Relaxes the whole body decreasing stress and tension leaving your muscles relaxed for up to 45 minutes after.
   Boosts your immune system by decreasing stress hormones and increasing your infection - fighting antibodies.
   Triggers the release of endorphins - making you feel good and at least temporarily relieving pain.
   Protects the heart - by increasing the function of your blood vessels and increasing blood flow.
   Helps to decrease anxiety and tension
   Improves mood
   Enhances resilience
   Strengthens relationships
   Enhances teamwork
   Helps to defuse conflict
   Promotes group bonding
   Attracts others to us

Stay tuned for updates on when the Laughter Club will start, we will be having groups in Carrum and Hastings.

Oh and by the way I ran this pass my children, the response was but Mum your not funny...... Kids!!!

Have a Happy Easter everyone

Joy
