Benefits of Laughter
- Laughter decreases stress hormones
- Laughter increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease.
- Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals which also help to reduce pain and improve your mood.
- Laughter stimulates your organs, such as your heart, lungs and muscles by increasing your intake of oxygen.
