Laughter is proven to be good for our health. And even though this week while I’ve been grieving it’s hard to find moments that evoke laughter, and laughing feels wrong when I’m hurting, I try to remind myself that it’s ok, and how it’s healthy. Here’s what I’ve learned about laughter... ———-// 1. Laughter relaxes the whole body - it has been proven to physically release tension for up to 45 mins after a good laugh 2. Laughter boosts the immune system - it decreases stress hormones and increases infection fighting antibodies 3. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins- the body’s natural feel-good chemicals! 🤣 4. Laughter protects the heart- Laughter improves the function of blood vessels and increases blood flow ❤️ 4. Laughter lightens anger-Laughing can help put problems into perspective and enable you to move on from confrontations without holding onto bitterness or resentment 5. Laughter may even help you to live longer (I’m no doctor this is just through research and conversations with professionals) - A study in Norway found that people with a strong sense of humor outlived those who don't laugh as much. The difference was particularly notable for those battling cancer 🙋🏼‍♀️... ———// Whatever your struggle may be try to find time for laughter. Have you laughed yet today? 😂🤣

Little Leo is such a strong guy! You don’t know how much you inspired me plus a lot more people. I love you so much and I hope we get to see each other soon! Will you be at the 5th and 6th grade campus? ❤️❤️❤️ #standuptocancer #staystrong

Very prominent right now. I hate you cancer, more than I hate my ex’s new girlfriend, Georgia from love island, when someone wastes food and Donald Trump! #StandUpToCancer ❤️

July is UV Safety Awareness Month. About 90 percent of nonmelanoma skin #cancers are associated with exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the #sun. Be smart! Wear sunscreen, take breaks in the shade, and protect your skin! #cancersupport #fightcancer #standuptocancer #cancersucks #CancerAwareness #cancersupport #cancertreatment #beatcancer #curecancer #cure #summerfun #safesummer #funinthesun #skincare

My wonderful friends Briony & Liam are raising money, can you help? I will have this donation box with me over the next few months ladies, so if any of you would like to donate you can... I will also be putting any tips I receive into the box, every penny helps! Abit about Liam - Liam was diagnosed with Terminal Pleural Mesothelioma in February 2017. As a family they have decided to raise money for Mesothelioma UK! For this, Liam will be cycling from Lincoln to Alicante - 1100 miles in total... crossing 5 different countries 😮 Pleural Mesothelioma is an asbestos related cancer. It is extremely rare in people under the age of 50, and virtually unheard of under the age of 40. Liam is just 31, so he is one of the rarest cases! I will share a link to their JustGiving page in the comments so you can read their full story! #FightingCancerTogether #MesotheliomaUK #StandUpToCancer #Charity #Fundraising #EveryLittleHelps #Hairdresser #MakeUpArtist #Nottingham #EastMidlands

Last week we were invited to go and see Edens favourite book, live on stage at the Theatre! We’re Going on a Bear Hunt. 🐻 . This family treat came from @spreadasmileuk 😊 . The show was fantastic! Both Eden and Willow enjoyed every minute. ☺️ It was lovely to be able to catch up with a few of the other families from the hospital too. . Spread A Smile also put on a little party for all the children and families that they support. It was perfect! I had tears in my eyes seeing my girls having the best time, laughing and running around - being normal ❤️ Two of Edens favourite people were there too - Ian the Magician 🎩 - he has Eden in stitches EVERYTIME, she loves him! And her real living Fairy, who Eden calls Pink Fairy. 🧚🏻‍♀️ Every part of the day was planned with our kids in mind. They really are a wonderful charity💕 . Thank you for our perfect day, a memory that will last forever❤️
