Here at Made for Life Organics we’re all about holistic wellbeing and that means finding ways to improve your health and happiness and those of those around you.

One of the simplest and most enjoyable ways to improve your health is to laugh. This month, it’s the world famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the largest arts festival in the world, where among other things, comedy is celebrated and performed by thousands of performers.

 

Here are five reasons why laughing is so good for us...

1. It’s good for your major organs.... Laughter enhances your intake of oxygen-rich air, stimulates your heart, lungs and muscles, and increases the endorphins that are released by your brain.

2. It relieves stress... Laughter can calm your stress response, and it can can also aid muscle relaxation, reducing the physical symptoms of stress.

3. It boosts your immune system. Negative thoughts manifest into chemical reactions that can affect your body by bringing more stress into your system and decreasing your immunity. In contrast, positive thoughts can actually release neuropeptides that help fight stress and potentially more-serious illnesses.

4. It relieves pain. Laughter can ease pain by causing the body to produce endorphins, its own natural painkillers.

5. It helps fight depression and anxiety. Laughter causes the body to release into the bloodstream high concentrations of different hormones and neuropeptides which stop the production of other brain chemicals that are linked to depression and anxiety.

This weeks to celebrate the two themes of laughter and nurturing your wellbeing, we’re offering a FREE Soothe & Nourish Lip Balm worth £9 with every order from Wed 9th August to 9am Monday 14th August, 2017. Lip Balm will be added at point of despatch.
