Why is laughter good medicine???
I’ll tell you why
Hello everybody! The picture above is me in the flesh. I am sure the old cliched “laughter is good medicine” is reverberating thru your head.
During these dark times, laugher can help boost your mood while in fact fortifying immunity. Every one of us has a chuckle muscle. It mitigates stress as well while simultaneously releasing dopamine, enhancing T-cell activity and a workout for the heart.
Chappelle’s show is one of my personal favourites to get me going.
Laughter is considered to be one of the best medicines out there. It’s been shown to boost the immune system, release endorphins that help with pain relief, and even promote cardiovascular health. But how does laughter achieve all of these things?
Laughter has been found to reduce stress and pain. It increases blood flow to muscles and internal organs while reducing the levels of cortisol in the body.
The relaxation and increased oxygen intake that results from laughter can improve the quality of sleep and ease chronic anxiety and depression.
Laughing also triggers the release of endorphins — chemicals in the brain that act as natural painkillers. A good laugh can help reduce the symptoms of conditions like arthritis, migraines, and fibromyalgia.
In addition to all of these benefits, laughter also appears to be good for your heart. Laughter has been linked with lower blood pressure, a stronger heart rate, and improved circulation. Let’s try to incorporate a little humor into our daily lives. Smile……..
