Well, I broke a promise; a New Year’s Resolution! This post and a few more to follow were to be clinical, informative and educational about lupus and other chronic illnesses, so we’d know what symptoms we might expect and more important: WHY we might expect them. Why certain symptoms manifest themselves in us and NOT in our friends who don’t have lupus- or an autoimmune disease-was to have been a starting point.
But this morning, a video found it’s way to my inbox and I had to share, considering the sharing kind of gal I am! Sometimes, when we have a chronic illness, and I’ll venture MOST OF THE TIME, we take ourselves too seriously and never laugh over a situation that we CAN’T CHANGE. At least I do!
Laughter also causes the body to relax and release it’s own natural pain killers, endorphins, so watching this video or whatever it takes for you to experience laughter, ought to be included in your daily routine. Is it?
My hobby is has been to regularly comb YouTube and other video sources and see what is on screen. Old television shows and movies are available and all it takes is a video of gut-wrenching laughter to make me feel better!
