They say laughter is the best medicine, and really they’re right. Having a good laugh cheers you up of course, but it also helps to dispel tension and stress, reduces anxiety and acts as a natural in-built anti-depressant.
Laughter decreases stress hormones and elevates your pain threshold by producing lots of lovely feel-good endorphins. Think of these as gorgeous blue dolphins swimming and diving and having fun all throughout your system.
According to Dr Ramon Mora-Ripoll in the Alternative Therapies Health And Medicine Journal laughter triggers changes in the immune system and can actually keep colds at bay!
Even better than that, laughter acts as a mini-workout for your facial muscles and even your core muscles.
So that’s it, no excuses, tell jokes, watch funny movies, make light of life and have a laugh today, it’ll do you the power of good.
