Let’s Laugh a Little!

Thursday, February, 23, 2017 < Back to Blog Posts

One thing you have to keep in mind as you journey through menopause is your sense of humor. Your sense of humor will get you through many moments when you want to cry, but you can laugh instead. Keep reading; I think you’ll get a laugh along the way.
“I stayed up all night to see where the sun went —then in dawned on me.”
Humor is known to help relax us and keep an optimistic attitude. Hearing a joke can lighten the mood.
“PMS jokes aren’t funny. Period.”
Things don’t seem as frightening when we are laughing. As people, we laugh an average of 17 times a day and although some people think they see their dogs smiling, we are the only species that has the capability to actually laugh.
“Broken pencils are pointless.”
Researchers at the University of Maryland found that laughter supports the healthy function of our heart, and our immune system. It’s really good for us to laugh.  But laughter is like any muscle; you have to exercise it. Sometimes, you have to make humor a priority.  Seek it out. Watch the TV shows that make you laugh out loud. Hang out with people that give you a good giggle. Watch that goofy video on the internet.
“What does a clock do when it’s hungry? It goes back four seconds.”
We all have challenges in our lives, especially during menopause. Laughter has the power to help focus on the positive. Research at the University of London of Neurology found that a good joke can activate the part of the brain that is used for learning and comprehension.  A good joke helps us work on the muscles in our brains.
“I did a theatrical performance about puns. It was a play on words.”
I’m not suggesting that laughing alone will get you through menopause. I highly recommend that you take Remifemin® menopause relief* as directed. It’s a reliable, clinically-studied RemiSure black cohosh extract that provides relief from hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings.* It allows you to have an effective alternative to Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) for the treatment of menopausal symptoms.*  And Remifemin works with your body to promote physical and emotional balance during menopause.*
With Remifemin and a good laugh, you can get through menopause much easier. So if you haven’t started Remifemin yet, now is the time. And if you need a good laugh, here’s one more!
“I tried to catch some fog…I mist.”
Groan a little, but then let out a big laugh. It’s good for you!
