Wellness Wednesday: Laughter is the Best Medicine


We've all heard that "laughter is the best medicine," but is there any scientific basis for it? Actually, yes. Laughter is a great form of stress relief and stress may increase risk for heart disease - that's no joke!

At this month's Wellness Wednesday on Feb. 8, learn mood boosters and stress stoppers while dining on a low-calorie menu of arugula/strawberry/feta salad, chicken cordon bleu, roasted asparagus with dijon-lemon sauce, and dark chocolate mousse. The luncheon will take place at 12 p.m. in 118 East Mason Hall. Take-out is also available. Tickets are $5 for students, $7 for faculty, staff and members of the community. RSVP at 256-782-5054.
