Did You Know? Laughter Helps Your Health

Studies have shown that laughter is capable of relieving pain, bringing happiness, and can even help strengthen your immune system. Laughter has more positive effects than anyone would think of, so why not let loose and laugh?

For example, laughter reduces the level of certain stress hormones such as cortisol. It also raises levels of other health-enhancing hormones in the body. As well, laughter increases the number of antibody-producing cells and makes the body’s T cells more effective. Essentially, laughter strengthens the immune system and lowers the amount of physical effects of stress.

Furthermore, laughter acts as in internal workout.  Having a good laugh will contract your abs, exercise the diaphragm, and even work the shoulders. It also helps prevent heart disease, leaves muscles feeling relaxed, and is a great emotional release. It is also a fantastic way to ease anxiety.

In addition, there are many social benefits to laughter. Laughter is a great way to connect ourselves with others and build relationships. By smiling and laughing, others will do the same. By elevating the mood of those around you, you can reduce their stress, and also reduce your own!

Laughing has so many benefits to our health and our social life, it’s almost a crime not to laugh; some people just don’t know how! There are plenty of ways to get yourself laughing, even if you aren’t with others.

T.V and movies are a great way to do this. There is certainly no shortage of comedic movies, so why not turn one on and have a good time? Being around others is another great way to get yourself laughing, because when others laugh, you want to laugh too. So remember, laughter has too many positive effects to ignore, so get out there and start laughing!
