Although a cough or a cold may be contagious, laughter is 10 times more contagious than any illness, and much better for you!
Laughter is actually good for your heart! It increases blood flow, and sometimes forces you to breathe deeper. This improves the function of the blood vessels which can benefit you against the risks of heart disease.
Laughing increases your immune system! That’s pretty cool, right? Laughter decreases the stress hormone (cortisol) and increases the immune system cells that fight against disease. (Decreasing the stress hormone can also benefit you in weight loss and body fat).
Laughing actually relieves physical tension and stress. Stress is a major cause of all sorts of illness! Laughter can relax the body and relieve tension.
Laughter really is the best medicine! It can actually release endorphins in the body which can be a natural pain reliever!
There are so many more benefits to laughter! I will be posting more about this here!
