09 Dec Happiness is…laughter, the best medicine
Can laughter bring more happiness AND other health benefits? You bet it can…
Happiness and laughter increases blood flow by 20% and this effect lasts from 30 to 45mins. It also decreases blood pressure and can offset distressing emotions. A laugh can decrease blood glucose levels by suppressing their elevation and by the muscles invovled in smiling using more glucose. Laughing can boost the immune system by raising levels of natural killer cells, gamma-interferon and B cells. Laughter increases endorphins which creates a euphoric effect and has pain-relieving properties. Increasing your spontaneity in all things you do is the fastest way to a giggle.
