BENEFITS OF LAUGHTER

Almost everybody would agree that it’s fun to share a laugh, but not everybody knows how healthy it is to laugh!

 

The benefits of laughter are numerous in all facets of life: personal, professional and social.  Laughter, backed by countless evidence-based studies, is being practiced not only as a fitness exercise but also as a therapeutic tool to control chronic diseases such as depression, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, Parkinson’s, hypertension, arthritis, and so much more!

 

Laughter strengthens your immune system, boosts mood, diminishes pain, and protects you from the damaging effects of stress and much more.  Nothing works faster or more dependable to bring your mind and body back into balance than a good laugh.  Laughter lightens your burdens, inspires hopes, connects you to others, and keeps you grounded, focused, and alert.

 

With all of this power to heal and reset, the ability to laugh is a tremendous resource for dissolving problems, enhancing relationships and supporting both physical and emotional health.
