Health Miracles of Laughter

Health Miracles of Laughter
Seeing our elderly parents and grandparents laugh is a gem. Their laughter is one of the signs that they are happy. But are you aware that laughter can give more than just the present giggle to our adult loved ones? Do you know that having a good laugh could bring health miracles to them too?

These are the health benefits that laughter brings to our senior loved ones:

  • Longevity

    Are you aware that most comedians live longer than other actors? In an article entitled “Why Do Comedians Live So Long?” by TIME Magazine, it has mentioned probable reasons why comedians live long. It stated that comedians might have lived longer because of the fulfillment they get from performing with live audience and from the fact that they are not pressured to have a toned body to be famous. Laughter could also lead to optimism. This positive mindset is all we need to live a happy and healthy lifestyle.

  • Improved Heart Health

    Getting stressed out is detrimental to our heart’s health. Hence, when our adult loved ones always feel unhappy and in distress, they become vulnerable to various cardiovascular diseases. On the other hand, if we keep our parents and grandparents happy through different means, like being with them or hiring a companion for them from Helping Hands Healthcare, we could reduce their risk of stress. Laughter increases stress-busting chemicals in the body. Our parent’s heart could be healthier if they have someone who could be the source of their laughter.

  • Boosts Immune System

    Laughter can improve our well-being and it can increase our oxygen intake. In fact, humor therapy or laughter therapy are considered as a complementary and alternative medicine because they can change the mental state of patients or of the elderly needing In-Home Care Service Provider in Big Island, Hawaii. These could further improve their physical condition. Moreover, the Laughter Online University (www.laughteronlineuniversity.com/laughter-immune-system/) has emphasized the link between laughter and one’s immune system. They said that the muscular movement which results from laughter stimulates and increases the functioning of the lymphatic system which is the “cleaning conglomerate that is the backbone of the immune system.”

  • Happy Workout

    Have you observed how your whole body move when you let out a giggle? A healthy giggle engages our muscles and nerves. Laughter is a good workout for our abdominal muscles and diaphragm. Getting a good laugh would therefore be more beneficial to our senior loved ones needing Home Care Service Provider in Hawaii, who have asthma or bronchitis.

Let’s help improve our beloved parent or grandparents’ health. Be the source of their laughter.

The state of Hawaii has determined that most caregivers are considered employees and in order to LEGALLY hire and pay your OWN caregiver, you must have a company established with State and Federal tax ID numbers. In addition to their hourly pay you must also pay for Workers Compensation Insurance, Temporary Disability Insurance, General Liability Insurance, and if the caregiver works more than 20 hours per week you must also provide medical insurance for each caregiver. Therefore; choosing an established agency such as Helping Hands Healthcare is an affordable and easy solution that will save you time, money, and relief from being in violation of State and Federal Labor Laws.
