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!
