"Laughter is the best medicine". Well there might be some truth to that old adage. According to the Mayo Clinic Laughter has short-term benefits of stimulating your organs through increased oxygen intake, relieve stress by decreasing heart rate and blood pressure and soothe tension by relaxing our muscles.
There are also long-term benefits to laughter which include improving your immune system by releasing more neuropeptides through positive thoughts, natural biochemical pain relief, increased personal satisfaction and mood improvement.
So now that we know laughter actually IS medicine, how do we laugh more? Find out what makes you laugh! Watch more comedy including movies, shows and standup. Read more comedic and positive material (like HealthZam ;-), and share a laugh with friends - for your health!
