I have heard it said that a preschooler laughs about 400 times a day, while an adult laughs an average of 10 times per day. Children are typically joyful beings, and I think we can learn from them. I happened across an article about the benefits of laughter and thought I would share them.

~Laughter relieves physical tension, leaving muscles relaxed for up to 45 minutes.

~Laughter boosts the immune system, decreasing stress hormones and increasing immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies.

~Laughter releases endorphins, elevates your mood, and enhances communication.

~Laughter protects the heart, improving blood flow.

Kindermusik provides many opportunities for you to share a laugh with children, so make sure to sign up for next semester's classes. You can get information on that here
