Studies have shown that laughter has tremendous health benefits. Laughter reduces mental and physical stress, lowers blood pressure, elevates mood and fight against depression, boosts immunity, reduces pain, sharpens cerebral functions and even decrease the chances of heart attack. When we laugh most of our muscles get active. The central nervous system gets a boost. Stress hormone, adrenaline level decreases and endorphins, body’s own pain reliever increase. Immunoglobulin synthesis is enhanced, increasing body immunity power. The blood pressure also falls significantly. Apart from the physical benefits, laughter also contributes to healthier social life, you will get more friends and even more girls will like you!!

An easy way to keep laughing is to make funny people your friends. You can also read books and watch films that make you laugh. You should also get in touch with children. They are great stress reliever. You can also join laughter clubs and make laughing a daily routine.
