Why Laughter is Important

Go on, have a laugh!  Don’t they say that laughter is the best medicine?  Laughter can do many things. According to the Mayo-Clinic:

In the Short Term…

It can:

  • Stimulate organs such as heart, lungs, muscles.
  • Increases the endorphins that your brain releases
  • Stimulate circulation and cause your muscle to relax.

In the Long Term…

It can:

  • Improve your immune system by increasing positive thoughts – helps to fight stress
  • It can relieve pain
  • Helps you to cope
  • and definitely… improves your mood!

When you think about it, laughter should be prescribed for us.  Our doctor should tell everyone to go home and have a good laugh!  Then they should ask us to come back in three weeks time if our symptoms have not improved!

Wouldn’t that be a turn-around?

Try to make a point of having a good laugh every day.  If you feel you have nothing to laugh about, do your best to find something… a joke… a book… a movie… anything that causes us to have a good belly laugh.

And do you know the best thing of all?  It’s free!  That’s right, they haven’t worked out a way to tax us on laughter just yet, so be thankful for that.

Have you got any good ones to tell us?  Sure love to hear them.  Please leave a comment down below, a joke if you like… anything that will help us to fight stress and relieve pain!  This is why laughter is important… it keeps us all sane!
