DON'T FORGET TO TAKE YOUR MEDICINE


A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

Proverbs 17:22 (KJV)

Here is that same verse in four more translations.

A cheerful heart is good medicine,

but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.

New Living Translation

A joyful, cheerful heart brings healing to both body and soul. But the one whose heart is crushed struggles with sickness and depression.

Passion Translation

If you are cheerful, you feel good; if you are sad, you hurt all over.

Contemporary English Version

Being cheerful keeps you healthy. It is slow death to be gloomy all the time.

Good News Translation

LAUGHTER IS A MANIFESTATION OF A MERRY HEART

Psalm 126:1–2 (NKJV)

1 When the Lord brought back the captivity of Zion,

We were like those who dream.

2 Then our mouth was filled with laughter,

And our tongue with singing.

Then they said among the nations,

“The Lord has done great things for them.”

SCIENCE IS CATCHING UP WITH THE BIBLE

Laughter has been linked with many physical and mental benefits including:

  • Enhance the immune system

  • Reduce pain (laughter causes the body to produce endorphins, its own painkillers)

  • Increase problem-solving ability

  • Increase breathing rate and blood oxygen levels

  • Increase heart rate and balance blood pressure

  • Aid digestion

  • Effect hormones and brain activity

  • Reduce anxiety, depression and tension

  • Promote relaxation and ability to sleep

  • Increase resilience

  • Increase energy and vigor

  • Improve mental function (memory, creativity)

Go ahead , laugh out loud! "The Lord has done great things" ! How do I get started- I'm glad you asked! Repeat after me - HA! HA! HA!
