 Reduce Your Stress through Laughter 

A study conducted in 2006 identified an interaction between the brain, behavior and the immune system.  It was found that simply anticipating an experience of laughter has the ability to boost health protecting hormones.  These same researchers have now found two years later that anticipating a positive laughter experience also reduces stress hormones that are believed to be detrimental to your health.
