The lighter Side of Life for the World
By Mr. Phil Satti - Staff Writer
These days there may be less to laugh about but that does not mean laughter is now becoming extinct.
Dr. Phela Goodstein, of the World Humor Institute, is making sure that laughter retains its important place in human emotions.
"Humor is a preventative medicine," says Phela. "The Institute deals with the causes of an illness rather than the effects."
Humor's healing power lies in the release of endorphins and seratonin, which come from the pleasure seeking part of the brain. Once released, they flood the body's nervous system and produce a more relaxed and healthy feeling.
Once one learns the secret to laughter, then so is the secret to enjoying life. But laughter is not only just good for improved emotional and physical health. You can better express happiness, wonder, awe, curiosity and the list goes on.
