Called to Laugh


I believe the greatest joy we can experience in life is laughter. But not just any laughter—I’m talking about the genuine, heartwarming laughter that lights up our surroundings and brings people closer, uniting us as brothers and sisters. It’s those unforgettable moments, filled with laughter shared among friends and loved ones, that truly stand out in our memories. Whenever I envision pure joy, it’s always a scene of people coming together, sharing stories and laughter.

Benefits of Laughing

Interestingly, scientists have uncovered numerous benefits of laughter that go beyond just feeling good. Laughter can:

  • Relax your entire body, easing tension and stress.
  • Boost your immune system, making you more resilient against illnesses.
  • Improve your mental health, providing a sense of well-being and happiness.
  • Protect your heart by improving blood flow and heart function.
  • Release endorphins, your body’s natural feel-good chemicals, which can alleviate pain.
  • Even burn calories, giving you a fun and effortless way to help manage your weight.

With all these benefits, allow us to help kick start a little chuckle to brighten your day and enjoy these cheesy missionary jokes.
