Laughter is good for your health. When you hear laughter, travel toward it. Spend time with fun, playful people. Be able to laugh at yourself and life’s absurdities by finding humor in everyday events.
What are the benefits of laughter?
♥ Increases our DHEA levels (anti-cancer fighting).
♥ Relaxes the whole body and relieves physical tension and stress, leaving your muscles relaxed for up to 45 minutes after.
♥ Boosts the immune system and decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease.
♥ Triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural fee-good chemicals and promotes an overall sense of well-being that can even relieve pain.
♥ Protects the heart by improving the function of blood vessels and increasing blood flow.
Laughter can dissolve distressing emotions. You can’t feel anxious or sad when you’re laughing. It can help you recharge and shift your perspective into a less threatening light. Remember your thoughts become things.
A humorous perspective can even be healthy!
