AWRIGHT DEN!: Release some stress

Social Share

When was the last time you had a good laugh?
There is no evidence that laughter can heal a chronic illness but research has found that there are huge benefits to laughter.
It was observed that laughter boosts immunity, lowers stress hormones, decreases pain, relaxes muscles, burns calories and can aid in the prevention of heart disease.
On the mental health side, it was observed that laughter adds joy and zest to life, eases anxiety and fear, improves one’s mood and enhances resilience.
On the social side, laughter strengthens relationships, attracts others to us, enhances teamwork and helps defuse conflict.
Over the past few months reading the newspaper for some has been very depressing, since it seemed to be just filled with bad news. Today I have decided to just give you an opportunity to have a good laugh and I hope it really boosts your day.
Below are some real responses or discussions during court.
Attorney: What is your date of birth?
Witness: July 18th.
Attorney: What year?
Witness: Every year.
Attorney: What gear were you in at the moment of the impact?
Witness: Gucci sweats and Reeboks.
Attorney: What was the first thing your husband said to you that morning?
Witness: He said, “Where am I, Cathy?”
Attorney: And why did that upset you?
Witness: My name is Susan.
Attorney: Now doctor, isn’t it true that when a person dies in his sleep, he doesn’t know about it until the next morning?
Witness: Did you actually pass the bar exam?
Attorney: How was your first marriage terminated?
Witness: By death.
Attorney: And by whose death was it terminated?
Attorney: Do you recall the time that you examined the body?
Witness: The autopsy started around 8:30 p.m.
Attorney: And Mr Denton was dead at the time?
Witness: No, he was sitting on the table wondering why I was doing an autopsy on him!
Attorney: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?
Witness: No.
Attorney: Did you check for blood pressure?
Witness: No.
Attorney: Did you check for breathing?
Witness: No.
Attorney: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?
Witness: No.
Attorney: How can you be so sure, doctor?
Witness: Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.
Attorney: But could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?
Witness: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practising law.
The Internet can be an amazing mood lifter. Next time you are feeling sad or depressed, just go to Youtube or Google and search for something funny. You will be shocked to see how easy it is to find a good laugh.
