1. Stress Relief
Read some funny books or watch a funny television program. Doing so reduces your level of stress hormones. No more cortisol to bring you down. Easing stress is one of the top benefits of laughter.
2. Pain Relief
Always keep stuff around that makes you laugh. You'll have those feel-good endorphins.
3. Stay Younger
Laughing increase blood flow in your body, ultimately making you look fresher and younger. Belly laughs improve physical and mental health.
4. Keeps You Energetic
Laughter enhances oxygen flow around the muscles and organs, ultimately resulting in more energy, more alertness, and more productiveness.
5. Improves Sleep
Laughing encourages the production of melatonin. Make a habit of sitting around the dinner table with family and friends sharing words of joy.
This is basically a Cliff Notes for the video, but sometimes a list helps us remember better. Laughter is so easy to do, so healthy to do, so free. The more I think about it, I just might borrow a Smurfs DVD from the local library!
