There is no better medicine than laughter, and it is even better if you can laugh at yourself while doing it!
Is there anyone who doesn't like to laugh? Laughing so hard that you literally pee your pants is what we all need! (okay maybe we can do without the peeing part)
HERE ARE SOME OF THE BENEFITS OF A GOOD OLD BELLY LAUGH
1. LOWERS BLOOD PRESSURE
The risk of stroke and heart attack is reduced for those whose blood pressure is lowered, even if their blood pressure starts at normal levels. So get comfy and watch 'The Office' for the 100th time if that's what gets your giggle on.
2. REDUCES STRESS HORMONE LEVELS
Yes, laughing can help reduce stress by simultaneously cutting the anxiety and stress that impacts your body.
3. BOOSTS T-CELLS
Laughter boosts T-cells which are specialized immune system cells waiting in your body for activation. When you laugh, you activate these T-cells that immediately begin to help you fight off sickness. Next time you feel a cold coming on, make sure to add some laughter to your tool kit.
4. TRIGGERS THE RELEASE OF ENDORPHINS
Endorphins are the body’s natural painkillers and laughing is one way to release them. Which ultimately can then help ease pain, reduce stress and make you feel good all over.
5. PRODUCES A GENERAL SENSE OF WELL-BEING
Laughter simply increases your overall sense of well-being. So smile, laugh, and live longer!
