Laughter Provides Some Huge Health Benefits
Soothes tension. Laughter can stimulate circulation and muscle relaxation, which can help reduce some physical symptoms of stress.
Improves your immune system. Positive thoughts (the kind you get while laughing) release neuropeptides that help fight stress and potentially more serious illnesses.
Relieves pain. Believe it or not, laughter can cause the body to make its own natural pain relievers that might make you feel better.
Connect with people and deal with difficult situations. Think about a time you went through something hard and someone made a joke to make you feel better. Sometimes it works. Try it. Also, don’t you feel more bonded with friends and family when you share a good laugh?
Stimulates organs and increases endorphins. Laughing boosts your intake of oxygen-rich air, stimulates your heart and muscles and enhances the endorphins released by your brain. Endorphins trigger a positive feeling in the body.
Improves your mood. Laughter can help lessen depression and anxiety and make you feel better overall.
Increases blood flow.
