A good laugh can help you feel energized and refreshed. Laughing boosts your oxygen intake and releases endorphins, the feel-good hormones that make you happy.
As Charlie Chaplin rightly said – ‘Laughter is the tonic, the relief, the surcease for pain’. Here go few more benefits of laughter:
Laughter makes you feel better
If you are feeling super stressed and somebody cracks a hilarious joke that makes you laugh hard, it will make you feel better, especially if it is totally out of the blue.
Laughter increases immunity
Negativity and stressful situations causes chemical reactions in your body that decreases your immunity, making it more likely you to fall sick. A hearty laugh fuels your immune system with disease-fighting powers that will help you stay healthy and energetic.
Laughter improves blood flow
Laughter reduces blood pressure and improves blood flow, which will in turn reduce your chances of suffering a stroke or heart attack.
Laughter boosts confidence and mood
People who are confident have an ability to laugh at themselves no matter how badly they mess up. They take any mistake in their stride and move on with a hearty laugh by minimizing stress, wasting time or causing any damage to oneself.
Laughter burns calories
Laughter could help you in your fitness plan. It raises your heart rate and can burn about 10-40 calories in 15 minutes according to a study.
