Laughter really is the best medicine
Updated: Nov 12, 2021
Laughter is the best medicine - I heard this so much growing up. My mom swore by it, she was pretty funny too. I laughed a lot growing up. I was also a pretty good joke teller.
Now seriously - LOL
With all this negativity around us, it is so important to get back to lightness and humor.
Laughter has many positive health side effects:
The release of endorphins increasing pain tolerance.
Boosts your immune system by releasing anti-infection antibodies to help protect your body.
Reduces stress by helping to regulate Cortisol.
Increases oxygen intake in the blood and kicks up your heart rate to increase circulation.
Relaxes your muscles, relieving tension and stress.
Laughing out loud is also good for toning your abdominals. Try a series of prolonged and repeated laughs out loud, feel our abs tighten to force out the sound.
Try laughing out loud when you are in your car alone. Do you feel more energized?
Try to NOT be so serious, look at the possible bright and funny side of things. One of the reasons that stand-up comedy is so good is because it does just that - make fun of life's stuff.
Live Comedy shows are coming back, it is helpful to be around other people that are also laughing to release inhibitions.
But even participating with a good comic or funny show on TV can be beneficial - Don't just watch - let it go and laugh out loud.
Now take a deep breath and let out a BIG belly laugh and enjoy your day.
