It’s not easy to laugh when you are coping with cancer. When life gets tough a good laugh is the quickest way to de-stress. Laughing is an effective distraction from things that cause anxiety and anger so choose your favourite comedy or movie and allow yourself to laugh out loud.

Laughter can help you breathe deeply sustaining deep exhales and exhale more fully.  It helps increase heart rate, respiration, and it gets the blood pumping as the upper body muscles are recruited into the action. A good laugh causes the brain to release stress relieving endorphins which increases people’s ability to cope with stressful situations.

Life is too short and too precious. Instead, laugh out loud and enjoy whenever you have the energy to join in.
