Start Your New Year With A Smile–For Free

Happy New Year!

Hoping everyone is enjoying a wonderful season of rejuvenation and good cheer. We had a fun visit with my family in South Florida and a visit with Mickey Mouse for a couple of days. Great chance to catch up and laugh with my wife and daughters.

While exercising over the holiday break, I happened to listen on my Ipod to a great audio podcast from one of my favorites, Zig Ziglar’s “Inspiring Words of Encouragement” that you can download by clicking the above hyperlink or from I-Tunes.

In his folksy fashion, Ol’ Zig talks about how important regular laughter and smiling is to your relationships and health. Here are a few of his comments:

-Laughter is the second most important emotion we can express-love is number one.

-It can help manage depression ,stress, and worry, as well as, lower blood pressure ( see medical documentation).

-Regular laughing is like “internal jogging”-it increases respiration and oxygenates your tissues while relaxing tense muscles.

-It’s low calorie, caffeine free, has no salt or preservatives.

-Although its it contagious, humor won’t make you sick.

-One size fit all.

-Best of all–laughing cost you nothing and its non-taxable.

This is an easy New Years resolution that solves alot of problems. Feel free to download this to your Ipod and send to a friend.

Let us know how my staff and I can help you smile more.

Keep smiling right,

    Check out the podcast….very good information.
    It’s amazing how people take smiling for granted.
