A Laugh a Day Keeps the Doctor Away

So it has been said before but the staff at PEC loves to laugh and have fun. We know that business is business but who said it can’t be fun? No matter the focus of their association with us – we love to laugh with our clients and vendors. We encourage our clients to have fun with the planning process of their events and firmly believe that if the planning process isn’t fun then something has gone wrong with our communication process.

As business partners, I don’t think Jamie and I every go a day without laughing with each other over something, whether it is personal or business related. Some of our favorite event stories are guaranteed to garner a laugh and you don’t want to get us started on how truly hysterical our personal lives can be from the right point of view.

Being able to laugh with each other over just about anything is one of the things that make us such good partners. We understand the importance of having a sense of humor and that is okay to find the humor in simply being human with all our faults and foibles. So because laughter is such a part of our lives I thought it would be great to give you a few reasons why laughter is good for you too:

  • Laughter lowers the levels of cortisol in the body. Cortisol suppresses the immune system. Lowering these levels enhances the work of the immune system and may prevent disease.
  • You can stimulate your heart and lungs, elevate your blood pressure and improve breathing capacity by laughing.
  • In terms of exercise, you can get the same benefits from laughing 100 times a day, as you can from 10 minutes of rowing.
  • 15 minutes of laughter equals the benefit of 2 hours sleep.
  • One good belly laugh burns off 3 1/2 calories.
  • Laughing for 15 seconds adds 2 days to your life span.

At PEC we believe that laughter is good for the soul and we hope you find reasons every day to laugh.
