Saint_Leo_University_OnlineIt’s finals week. While the end of the term is in sight, right now you’re up to your eyeballs in papers and final exams for your online degree program.

So you could probably use a bit of a laugh.

According to the Mayo Clinic, laughter has both short-term and long-term benefits. Short-term, the physiological changes your body goes through when you laugh – stretching muscles, increasing oxygen flow and stimulating circulation – can soothe tension. Long-term, laughter may boost your immune system and may even relieve pain.

For right now, though, it might be the mental break you need to help you refocus.

So here are some one-liners with the hope of making you smile.
