What Is Listen & Laugh?

Introducing Listen & Laugh
by Dr. Neala Peake, ATH Editor-In-Chief 

Why have we chosen to create a category called Listen and Laugh? Research has shown that a good laugh reduces tension and stress levels and generally elevates the way we feel both emotionally and physically. Research has also shown the healing benefits of music. But better minds than mine have said it more eloquently, so I will share their words:

"A day without laughter is a day wasted."~Charlie Chaplin

"A sense of humor... is needed armor. Joy in one's heart and some laughter on one's lips is a sign that the person down deep has a pretty good grasp of life."~Hugh Sidney

"Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand."~Mark Twain

"The power of music to integrate and cure... is quite fundamental. It is the profoundest nonchemical medication."~Oliver Sacks, Awakening

"If one should desire to know whether a kingdom is well governed, or if its morals are good or bad, the quality of its music will furnish the answer."~Confucius

"Take a music bath once or twice a week for a few seasons, and you will find that it is to the soul what the water-bath is to the body."~Oliver Wendell Holmes

May this category touch your heart and lighten your soul.
