Laughter is the Best Medicine: Forever
Laughter calms your whole body:A good, hearty laugh reduces physical tension and stress, giving your muscles relaxation for up to one hour.
Laughter protects your heart:Do you know that laughter boosts the function of blood vessels and enhances the blood flow, which can help protect you against a heart attack or any other cardiovascular problems.
Laughter light up your anger’s heavy load:Nothing can diffuse the conflict and anger faster than a shared laugh. Looking at the funny side can put all your dilemmas into each other's views and enables you to move on from conflicts without holding onto the resentment.
Laughter helps you to live longer:A study in Norway found that people with a strong sense of humor survived those who don't laugh as much. The difference was also notable for those who were battling cancer. You can well imagine now!
Laughter burns calories:I am not saying that it is a replacement for going to the gym, but according to a recent study, laughing for 10 to 15 minutes a day can burn about 40 calories, which could be enough to lose three or four pounds over the course of a year.
Laughter boosts your immune system:Laughter lessens the stress hormones and strengthens the immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus increasing your resistance to disease.
Releases Endorphins and Dopamine:Laughter brings out the endorphins which are the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain. Let’s take into consideration the science behind laughter boosting your mind:
Dopamine is a kind of Neurotransmitter, a chemical substance of human body that is released at the end of a nerve fiber that helps control different types of human expressions and pleasure centers. And a hearty laughter helps in release of Dopamine in a tremendous way. Laughter also increases the secretion of endorphin within the brain and the nervous system, a group of hormones responsible for different physiological reactions among the human body. Evidently, the more endorphin secretion, the more the ‘let’s nacho’ mood!
