The Power and Benefits of laughter are more than hysterical! 

 

Did you know that laughter can improve your health?! Now, there's some good news we can all agree on!

Laughter draws people together in ways that trigger healthy, physical and emotional changes in the body. Laughter strengthens your immune system, boosts mood, diminishes pain, and protects you from the damaging effects of stress. Nothing works faster or more dependably to bring your mind and body back into balance than a good laugh. Humor lightens your burdens, inspires hope, connects you to others, and keeps you grounded, focused, and alert. 

 

1- Laughter relaxes the entire body

  A good, hearty laugh relieves physical tension and stress, leaving your muscles relaxed for up to 45 minutes after.  

 

2- Laughter boosts the immune system

  Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease.  

 

3- Laughter triggers the release of endorphins

 The body’s natural feel-good chemicals, Endorphins, promote an overall sense of well-being and can improve how you're feeling, big time! 

 

4- Laughter protects the heart

  Laughter improves the function of blood vessels and increases blood flow, which ultimately improves your cardiovascular function and health. 

 

5- Laughter burns calories 

  OK, so it’s not a replacement for getting your sweat on outdoors or at the gym, but a study found that laughing for 10 to 15 minutes a day can burn approximately 40 calories—which could be enough to lose three or four pounds over the course of a year.  More reasons to laugh as often as possible! 

 

6- Laughter lightens up your mood 

Nothing diffuses anger and conflict faster than a shared laugh. Looking at the funny side of an equation can put problems into perspective, and enable you to move on from confrontations without holding onto bitterness or resentment, and ultimately helps stimulate finding peaceful and positive solutions. (We love this!)
