Laughter is the Best Medicine

Laughter is the Best Medicine

Laughter is the best medicine. So is Love. It is scientifically proven that these two positive feelings help keep the immune system strong.

The body and the mind interact in ways that science cannot fully explain. According to the Merck Manual, a global medical reference standard, people with a negative outlook on life produce fewer white blood cells than people with happy, cheerful outlooks on life do.

Love is not always easy to find and/or to feel. But laughter is always available to us. It's a great practice to listen to our favorite comedians when we feel down. Or we can read funny stories or watch movies that make us laugh.

Laughter reduces pain and enables us to tolerate discomfort. It reduces blood sugar levels, increasing glucose tolerance in diabetics and nondiabetics alike.

We can laugh silently to ourselves about the ridiculous nature of existence, or we can burst out into loud roars and share the laughter with others. It's our call.

Laughter reduces pain, enhances job performance, connects people emotionally, and improves the flow of oxygen to the heart and brain.

Laughter helps release hormones such as endorphins that have a very positive effect on arteries.

Researchers say that 15 minutes of laughter a day can do wonders for our mental balance, which is inextricably linked to our physical wellness.

Have a few laughs. It’ll do you good.
