Benefits of Laughter
We all love a hearty laugh, as it provides a psychological boost and makes one feel better. Laughter is infectious and more contagious than bacteria or a flu virus. It helps us connect with others, and improves relations. Fake or real, alone or with a group, it makes no difference! Laugh, laugh, laugh!

There are additional health benefits, as well:

  • lowers blood pressure
  • boosts immune system
  • diminishes stress hormone levels
  • aids digestion
  • improves cardiovascular and lung function
  • raises levels of good cholesterol
  • minimizes pain by release of endorphins, chemicals that function as neurotransmitters and block pain
