Topic: Health benefits of laughter

BIO: Anthony is a little “off” – but in a good way. The lens through which he views life may be slightly cracked and warped but it brings a different perspective and a ridiculousness we can all embrace.  Anthony has a passion for laughter, life, community and philanthropy and it shows in his actions, words - and yes, antics.  Anthony loves to inspire people to recognize their fortunes, to give thanks, to be persistent and to most importantly share a laugh while on this journey. 

Your Caveman Brain is Stressing You Out – Look out! A car! Fear briefly triggers cortisol which stimulates our body to divert all resources to ensure we move out of the way of the passing car.  You survive and then cortisol levels in our body drop back down.  What if cortisol was pumping all the time?  Good? NO!!! Unhealthy! Think: long term suppression of your immune system, elevated blood pressure, decreased brain function!  Stress is killing us. Literally. Work = stress. Life = stress.  Kids = stress. Money = stress and long term stress = death! Ack!  Laughter can help! Let’s laugh more and reap the benefits!
