Fun Saturday Fact

Happy Saturday everyone! Here is a fun little fact that I hope makes you smile!

According to my Women’s Health Magazine, “Dropping a F-bomb or two could make your stubbed toe hurt less, according to the journal NeuroReport. Researchers had students plunge their hands into icy water twice, once while cursing and once saying a neutral word. When swearing, they withstood the deep freeze for about 30 percent longer and felt roughly 50 percent less pain. “Cursing can trigger the body’s fight-or-flight response, which masks pain,” says lead study author Richard Stephens, Ph.D.”

So there you go…all you “cursers” out there now have a scientific excuse! HAHA!
