Dad Jokes – The Best Medicine!

Some say laughter is the best medicine, and there is good reason for that! Laughter benefits the body in a variety of ways.  Benefits of laughter include: boosts immune system, relives stress and tension, triggers the release of feel good hormones, burns calories and protects the heart by improving blood flow. A study in Norway even found that people with a strong sense of humor outlived those who didn’t laugh as much. The difference was particularly notable for those battling cancer.
